That’s a fine looking set of Shoji screens—I’m sure the client loves them!

By the way, how did you keep those long stiles and rails straight, and not have them curl or cup on you?

Thanks for the kind words, my Wife loves her new studio. I built the doors several years ago out of Alder, they are 1”x 4”, all mortise and tenon. Giving the length of the rails and stiles, I was ready to build more if cupping or twisting started. However, after a few season’s of hot summers and cold winters, the wood has remained straight. I did use quarter sawn pieces when possible, hopefully that has helped.
The screens can be purchased at, I used the laminated ones with a thin two way tape to attach to the wood.

Have your say...
