Color stained Beech shoji with cedar kumiko, left natural, and Kinwashi Warlon paper.

I'm editing this post since it lacked a bit of information. The shoji on the left will be a fixed panel that will be installed in a wall opening.

The 10 shoji on the right cover a wall of glass windows and doors and there are 5 wider shoji stacked behind them for a kitchen room divider. I'm excited to get pictures of this install.

We really liked the color contrast of the kumiko left natural with the stained frames.

Talley / McCarthy

One of three Sapele shoji, lightly stained, with a Lumicor insert material and special kumiko pattern. Ed built these with heavier kumiko (grid) to balance with their large size and minimal kumiko coverage.

A joinery detail shot. The Lumicor is Paper Leaf Natural.
