A couple of years ago I had an opportunity to buy a number of sets of vintage shoji screens and have always intended to incorporate them into a series of limited edition case pieces. With this sideboard/buffet, we finally found the perfect project/client to produce the first one.

The case itself is made from quarter sawn white oak, with charred walnut drawer faces, one of which is upholstered with a remnant from a kimono belt (obi). We also fabricated some simple brass pulls for the drawers and re-paperd the shoji that slide effortlessly in their tracks.
