I’m not going to go into the technique to produce a tambour again – that is covered on this site already (and the latest copy of ManSpace, due in the new year).
A great set, which produces an awesome result.
It is a pretty cool, flexible piece (of timber). It is quite a bit wider than required, leaving me with plenty of capacity to get it to the right size (width). Getting the right length is even easier….just remove slats
After gluing a few pieces of timber together to create what will become the track for the tambour door, a piece of MDF cut to the path of the track is attached with carpet tape. The router with a template guide and straight bit then follows around the edge to cut the required track.
The track is in place, and I have probably used a few more slats than necessary, but it will be fine that way – no gaps.
The finished door, ready for the track to be glued up. It is to be the dishwasher – more of an industrial version. Still have a shelf to add, and a spinning jet arm. Came up really well though – very pleasing.
