Shoji tables can be used as a light. Shoji end tables would be a perfect addition for your house or workplace environment. A lit shoji table would certainly be a curious and decorative asian touch to your rooms, place of work, or living room, shaped with beautiful shoji wood and rice paper. When darkened, the tables are fine-looking, and smooth. And when alighted, the table acts more than just as a table and becomes a wonderful example of home accessories casting a smooth and bright glow. Unfussiness and style are the hallmarks of shoji tables.

Among shoji furniture there are also bedside tables. You can place these on each end of a couch bed, or one after your favourite drawing room chaise lounge, or sofa. This will be a superb match for mattresses and platform beds.

Making Shoji Furniture

For making shoji furniture, quarter-sawn US lime tree (Linden), completed with an obvious catalyzed lacquer is usually used. Quarter-sawn (sometimes called 'vertical grain'), gives a straight grain pattern with a lovely watered silk appearance. Fir, Cherry and Port Oxford cedar are other kinds of wood used.

For the girdwork, Port Oxford Cedar is plane-smoothed and left natural. Both Basswood and Port Oxford Cedar are a creamy blond and brown. They work wonderfully together. They will also fit into the interior wood tones of your room unobtrusively.
