Kumiko frames
Stack of kumiko frames going together.

More kumiko parts
Some of the kumiko parts for the last three orders- the labor intensive part of a shoji screen. Every little 'stick' needs to be planed-cut to length-notched-planed again-oiled-oiled again then burnished and assembled. There are two kumiko frames per shoji and the last step is to cut the laminated paper make the kumiko-paper-kumiko sandwich that will slide into the shoji frame. K18 is a more complicated pattern with many more pieces and each of the free floating ends needs to be detail trimmed as shown above.

 This batch of Cherry had alot of nice figure, Ed tried to show it better using a flash on the picture below. Definitely highlighted more of the figure in the wood.

Three Maple shoji screens to span 121" x 112-3/8" in front of a window wall with sliding glass doors. Each shoji is 41-3/4" x 111" x 1-3/8" - too large to photograph in the shop, let alone all together, so thankfully this morning was nice enough to get a shot outside. 
We used 1 mm White Warlon and large inlaid Ebony door pulls.


Elvis tried to step in for scale but it was a tad windy.. he kept blowing over!
 
And the crate - 48" x 120" x 14" - weighing in a 550 lbs.

Treyball Installed

We received a couple of pictures of these shoji installed.
Thanks to our client for sending pictures of her beautiful bathroom remodel.

"The Shoji are a showstopper — absolutely stunning!! It’s really hard to get a good picture because of the glass but in person they are amazing! Love it so much!! ~ M "

The shoji on the right side doesn't have a moon, it's a reflection from the glass shower surround. That is an awesome tub.
