Honolulu bound

Custom shoji screens built of Sapele to offer privacy over a wall of sliding glass doors. One of the requirements was air flow hence the open upper and lower kumiko (the blue is supposed to be sky and the green grass - to show they are open grids). The shoji on the left, in the drawing, has a Sapele panel instead of the Warlon Acrylic insert material. This and two other shoji panels will create a closet, of sorts, to store the glass sliding doors.

We didn't have space in the shop to lay out all the shoji for a picture.

A smaller shoji panel to close off a wall opening. It will be set in with Sapele trim all around.

The open kumiko were milled double thickness. The white background is the table the shoji is laying on.
