This cabinet is influenced by, and uses the proportions of, Japanese shoji or sliding screens. Rather than sliding however, the doors fold back into the cabinet sides. The ripple or curl figure in the wood is the result of compressed grain perpendicularly crossing the face of a board, producing alternate stripes of hard and soft board fiber. This gives an almost three dimensional effect to the surface.
