Woodworker: Hiroshi Yanagisawa
Yanagisawa’s client had saved some beautiful vertical cypress lattice from the shoji screens in her parents’ traditional Japanese house before it was torn down, and asked him to make a display cabinet for her using the lattice. Yanagisawa combined western and Japanese aesthetics in his walnut and cherry cabinet (14-1/8 in. deep by 63-3/4 in. wide by 39-3/8 in. tall). He steam-bent the lattice to make curved doors and added simple carved handles. The sliding doors are hung so that no track is visible.
