Andon made of cypress (oh how I love cypress). All the shoji panels are removable. Done mostly with hand tools. Still needs to be hung in the kitchen after I get the lights wired. Lots of fun, probably 20ish hours on it.

Very handsome piece. I’ll bet your hand planes got to come out and play on this one.

Thanks. Yes the hand planes got a workout. Much traditional Japanese woodwork is unfinished, and I really like that. Now that I look at the pics though, I can see some glue squeeze-out. Cameras always seem to show the things you didn’t catch!

Very nice work—but it would be even better to see a picture of it it up.

Very nice indeed. I’ve built a couple of fixtures but none as involved as yours. Way cool. Keep it up.
