"Using only the best materials, my shoji are like fine furniture... not just a door."

Terrance Maloney - Shokunin (craftsman)

The Craftsman

Terrance has been a woodworker and Shoji maker since 1982 when he apprenticed in Portland Oregon with John Massiocchi. Over the years he has worked for himself and many contractors while living in Portland, Seattle, and Bellingham.

The Process

This site is for the Professional Designer, Architect, Builder and the clever homeowner. My name is Terrance Maloney and I am your Shokunin (craftsman). Portland Shoji Screen is a small business catering to the discriminating Japanese Style enthusiast. In business since 2000, every job I do and every shoji I build is my very best work. Using only the best materials, my shoji are like fine furniture… not just a door!
