I've always loved this picture. I'm finally updating that website portfolio page with the newer images sent by our client. You can see the rest of the install here .

Fixed shoji panels in Beech with 2.0 mm Warlon Acrylic and the client's kumiko pattern.

 Built to the designer's specifications regarding the frame detail. I'd really like to see them installed.

Close-up of the stile / rail detail.


A shoji to cover the lower half of a window, 94" wide by 21" tall. The shoji installs with single wood tracking so it can be removed to clean when needed. The client wanted the Fibonacci kumiko pattern turned on it's side. Challenging but workable.

A second shoji for a different window 70" wide by 19" tall. The change in proportions required a change in the kumiko pattern.

A sideways view of the second shoji's kumiko pattern.

Cherry shoji with cherry kumiko and 0.3 mm White Warlon paper. These shoji will install floor to ceiling with bi-fold tracking. The upper rail is thicker to cover the upper arch of the opening. The open kumiko grid is to allow circulation for the HVAC system in the condo.

Close-up of the upper kumiko; Ed wanted to add some interest so he alternated the horizontal kumiko to give it visual depth.

Another shot of the upper kumiko area.

The counter these shoji will be installed on is angled so Ed milled the stiles to meet at the exact angle the client provided.

The look from the back.

Little shoji for a cabinet I believe.
