I’ve never thought about making one of those. How’s the screen attached?

Looks great. What did you use for the shoji paper? I have been wanting to make something similar but cannot find anything to use for the paper that is not very expensive.

I used Japanese washi paper from a printmaking shop, and used
Rice glue to attach it. It didn’t cost much but I was tempted by the mulberry paper, next time !

Very nicely done, and thanks for the follow up on what type of paper and where you located such paper. One more question if I might, is the back just the paper or are there any mullions on the back?

Great looking Shoji door! You’ve tempted me to make some sliding closet doors out of it.

Does any local printing shop carry this paper, or do I have to use the one you did? Thanks!

Thanks all!
