Wampler & Sons

Beech shoji screens with 0.45 White Warlon laminated paper and inlaid Ebony door pulls.

 The wood ledger, track and valance assembly.  The ledger screws to the wall , the screw heads will be inside the groove shown in the ledger. Then the valance clips to the ledger with the metal "french cleats". The end of the valance is mitered to return to the wall and cover the end of the ledger and track.   A neat clean system for a barn door type tracking ,where the shoji side over a wall face.

The assembly all together, viewed from the underside.
