Whether used as room dividers or as design elements, shoji walls with sliding doors offer their unique charm in modern interior architecture. The delicate wood frames are covered on their reverse sides with a tough, translucent paper.
Shoji sliding doors can be used for example to close a storage space. Such single sided Shoji, where you see the wooden framework only from one side are most economical.
For room dividers on the other hand one may prefer a double sided Shoji, where the wooden framework is visible on both sides. In this case a second frame with same measurements has to be pinned to the first frame.
Shoji paper is a tough, translucent paper made of wood fibers. Some types are enforced with fiberglass. On the picture left you see a Shoji screen separating our shop from the stockroom. Gluing Shoji paper is easy, just follow the instructions below! Information on how to build Shoji screens can be found in the book, "Making Shoji" by Toshio Odate, which is carried here at Fine Tools, and is strongly recommended!
