Rockridge Building Co


 Custom shoji screens built as a wall / room divider, built in Cherry with 1 mm Warlon and Japanese Cherry inlaid door pulls. This is the largest shoji 54" wide by 96" tall. 
One of six all different sizes - normally we spread them out for a photo, but these were so large we did not have room. We're really hoping the contractor will take pictures so we can see them installed!

Elvis stepped in for scale-he is 6' tall.

 More of the shoji. Note the aluminum clips on the edges- below are closeups and an explanation.

Two of the shoji screens meet at a 45 degree angle, so one stile on each has a 22.5 degree bevel.

Four of the shoji are to be paired, two joined together to function as one. This aluminum piece is called a french cleat- you can see how they interlock. Ed milled these for this job. The middle stiles are 1/2 the width of the others, so joined together they have the same width.

This shows the two narrow stiles joined together with a reinforcing strap across the top. Also attached is a hanger bracket for the track rollers. The same strap is at the bottom of the pair of joined shoji that Ed also milled for this job.
