Long time lurker here. I decided to make a post to see if anyone would be interested in commissioning wood working projects. I currently work at a custom wood working shop, where we can basically make anything. Here are some pictures of a coffee table I recently finished. So if anyone is interested you can either post on this thread or pm me.

While there is nothing in particular, right now, you may want to look into this book:
It was written by the folks at the Kyoto Costume Museum, and has diagrams and specifications for various pieces of Heian furniture that may be of interest to you. It is all in Japanese, but I believe it to be fairly straightforward in terms of the diagrams. There are a little more than 20 pages of diagrams. The rest of the book has beautiful pictures of costumes, architectural details, etc. that would have been part of the life of Genji. Even if you don't read Japanese it is a beautiful book, and if you get it and want a translation of something specific in it I'd be happy to assist.

Thank you, I will definitely check it out when I get the chance. I also forgot to mention that I have experience painting metal. I can also do all kinds of effects. I will post some pics of some samples later today.
