  1. Office dividers

    These are pictures of a job I just completed. The customer had moved their office into a strip mall. The room was a huge empty rectangular space with no clearly defined spaces. So I was tasked with creating an expensive way to divide the space. So I came up with Asian shoji screen inspired...
  2. Shoji floor lamp

    Made for a Friend, all oak with mulberry paper for the screens. Sadly this is the only photo i have of this lamp. It stands at around 3 feet tall. I think i made the legs a little heavy.
  3. Headboard, Doors, and Builtin

    Queen headboard of hard maple with red oak rails, stained and lacquered. Sliding closet doors are framed panels of 1/4" ply veneered with rice paper and 1×1 wood strips in an abstract pattern to simulate shoji. The drawer faces on the builtin are a material called Kirei Board, which is...
  4. Shoji Screen

    Finished my first shoji screen. As it was a protype to learn joinery and get used to the process, the screen is smaller. Decided to make it a free standing screen. Will probably make some full size screen dividers or lamps next. Thanks to Jay VanArsdale at DaikuDojo for teaching us. JP

  6. Cat Proof (I hope) Shoji Door/basement remodel

    I wanted to enclose part of my basement/garage to relocate kitty litter boxes and allow us to park without the cats getting out or being run over. I designed these doors in sketchup, built them out of 2×4 studs that were ripped and dimensioned, some 1/4" plywood, FRP panelling instead of rice...
  7. Christmas Gifts: Shoji style newspaper collector bin

    A good exercise in mortise/tenon (36 joints) and half-lap joinery. This is version 2 of a Xmas gift. The first version was bigger than it had to be. It will replace an ugly metal newspaper collector in the living room. Uses a fair amount of lumber, maple and walnut in this case. The 2 rosewood...
  8. First shoji...

    The idea is to build shoji for all the living room windows that are currently covered with blinds. This is the start, and there are plenty of goobers that don't quite show. But a start none the less. You can see a little squiggle in the kumiko (the thin cross strips) that comes from ever so...
  9. Black Walnut Shoji Lamp

    Just finished this Shoji lamp in Black walnut and traditional Japanese paper. Thanks for looking.
  10. Lamp with Kumiko Panels from Pallet timber

    This piece was made for an upcoming exhibition "create from a crate" it is made out of pallet timber and tasmanian Myrtle. The lamp screeens have "kumiko" panels with the As-ah-no-ha pattern "washi" paper is glued onto the back of each press-fit panel. The lamp houses a LED light powered by...
  11. More Shoji Lamps

    A while ago a friend asked for some lamps like my earlier one, so I came up with two similar table models, and one free standing floor model. As with the first one, I cut all the dados first on a solid board, then ripped them into individual strips. The difference with these is I cut the dados...
  12. Sangaku Computer Case

    This was my first and most traditionally styled computer case. I was helping a friend build one out of copper pipe and decided I could do it better myself and a shoji case immediately came to mind. I used sitka spruce and mahogany for the case. The joints can all be taken apart and the side...
  13. Solar Flicker Japanese Lantern

    Just as a fast one-day build, I made this Japanese frame lantern from some 3/4" oak I had left over from other projects. The outside is a plastic-reinforced shoji paper called Warlon Taf-Top. The lighting unit is from a flicker-flame solar LED path light you can get at the Home Despot. The...
  14. Closet Shoji

    The weather finally turned south (south from Oregon) and I am able to catch up on some projects that have been hanging fire. This project started several months ago from a comment made by "ChicoWoodNut" on a posting I made over a year ago of a pair of bedroom dressers I had posted. Scott's one...
  15. Shoji Style Lamp

    So my girl and I have one of those typical college town apartments in which the lighting in the living room consists of an outlet connected to a light switch. We have some decent lighting on one side of the room, but the other was pretty bad, and certainly inadequate for working on sudoku...
  16. Shoji

    I designed this shoji around the centerpiece, which includes bamboo, plum, and pine trees in formed steel. I don't know its original purpose, but coming from Japan I imagine it had an architectural role like a ranma. I started by welding on a branch where I could see one had broken off. As with...
  17. Sliding Shoji

    I built these some time ago, they are pine. I use Toshio Odate's book about making shoji as a basis for this project and high recommend it. There were a few issues in this build (2 miss drilled holes for the horizontal members) but they are hard to notice (except in the pictures). A couple of...
  18. First Japanese style lamp

    This is the first lamp I built from a book I bought with quite a few examples. I have taken to Japanese style and design of late, mainly for it's lightness and simplicity. I used poplar for the inner framework, and cypress for the legs and top. Did I say simplicity? The inner frame was a bit...
  19. Shoji Screen Jewelry Box - More pictures added

    This is my latest project. It is an Asian themed jewelry box that my wife and I designed together. It is made of meranti for the case, birdseye maple for the door, drawers, and back, and bloodwood as accents in the segmented turning of the necklace carosel, drawer handles, and on the earring...
  20. The Shogun (Queen platform bed)

    I've never built a bed frame before. Working at this scale is exhausting and barely fits in my shop (everything pushed to the walls!). Solid tassie oak, (Organoil) danish oil then shellac for the finish. The headboard is on a 5 degree angle, with the darker bits just being stained (walnut →...
