Good Questions: Japanese Shoji Doors in Boston?

Good Questions: Japanese Shoji Doors in Boston?

I am finishing by basement and will end up with a closet which is approximately 145" and needs to be easily accessible. I would like to use doors, not fabric, to cover up the space. After much searching I found some inspiration in the Japanese shoji sliding doors. I love the look of those doors, however, I am looking for advice on where (in the Boston area) I can purchase them cheaply and/or how difficult would it be to make them myself. All advice, directions etc. are greatly appreciated! Thanks AT, Yelena

Its not quite the same thing but the IKEA sliding panel curtains can have a very similar effect on an entire wall. We have the paper/fiber panels hiding a wall of closets and its very Shoji-esque — might be a cost-effective alternative to real Shoji doors. Anyone else?
