Shoji screen barn door type install

Beech shoji screens for 'barn door type' installs, closet and bathroom doors.
Prairie style kumiko pattern (14) with Bamboo Warlon - the bamboo pattern in the Warlon really pops with shadow behind it. See the image below to show the bamboo pattern in front of white for contrast.

Pocket door shoji screens

Two pocket door shoji screens made from Sapele, in our pattern 20, with a panel. Ebony pulls and opaque white Warlon paper. Size 30" x 80" x 1-3/8".

We hand pick all our wood. Every stick of it. And sometimes, there are a few pieces in the stack that are really exceptional though usually there is  not enough to fill out a whole order.  We buy it anyway- never can tell. On this job, there was just enough - the wood is an African "mahogany". These boards have a beautiful rippled grain that really catches the light, some parts look like water at a full boil, sort of bubbly. A more typical grain for Sapele is the ribbon stripe figure in the panels, pictured below. Really a lovely set of shoji.

  Closet shoji screens built in Beech with Opaque white Warlon. Too many to lay them all out like we usually do. Ed apparently misplaced Elvis so no way to see the scale of these.
The two widest closet shoji in the back are 53"in width if that helps.
The interior window shoji in front are 47-3/8" W by 36" H.
Another view below.

The interior window shoji and the two narrow pivot-hinge swing door shoji have white Warlon instead of the opaque white Warlon used in the closets.The denser opaque white warlon looks brighter for closets since it doesn't show shadow from the closet interior.
