The construction of shoji - Japanese sliding doors and screens -requires great skill and attention to detail. With Toshio Odate’s help, woodworkers can tackle this traditional craft with confidence. Detailed instructions with step-by-step photos show how to make two shoji projects: the common sliding screen with hipboard, plus a transom featuring the beautiful asanoha pattern. Technical chapters detail eight shoji variations, plus the Japanese mortise-and-tenon joint, shoji paper, and homemade rice glue. Drawing upon his unusual life, Odate includes richly moving stories of his apprenticeship in Post-War Japan, putting traditional woodworking into cultural context in a way that will enhance every woodworker’s library.
