David (Mon PM TG) –
The wood is Karri which was pretty hard and a little difficult to work with. It felt like I was always sharpening chisels and plane blades. It was also my first project with MSFW. I’m very happy with the results though. The paper is called shoji gami and was sent over from Japan by my father-in-law. The design has Japanese influence, a mixture of a few different styles. The lattice work on the doors was decided upon after taking many photos of different options and discussing these with Gray and the other members of the tutor group.
