« Part 8: Starting To Take Shape Now.. Part 9 of Tool Cabinet Build series Part 10: Tambour and Rabbets... Oh My.. »

I was able to squeak in a few hours of shop time today so I finally got back to work on the tool cabinet build.

First thing was to plug the back end of the sliding dovetails so i can get the back ready for some T&G slats.

With that done I wanted to knock out another part that I had been putting off which was gluing up the canvas onto the tambour doors. I had been putting this off because it required a fixture to be built to hold everything square while it was glued up and quite frankly.. I couldn’t be bothered till today lol.

Knocked out the jig pretty quick (should have just done it a long time ago) and got to work..

And now I am just waiting on glue to dry so I can see how badly I f’d these away. Hopefully they work out but if not I guess I’ll have to start over.. no turning back on these now :D

Stay tuned!

I think I might have used too much glue and have some squeeze out on one side of one of the doors that I am afraid is going to permanently affix it to the jig lol.

Looking good Eric. Better clean up the Betty Crocker spatula and put it back before your wife notices it’s missing. ;-)

Tambour Update -

Pulled the doors out of the jig this morning and I can now mark make tambour off my bucket list I think.

They were stuck to the jig in a couple places but that was easily dealt with.

All that is left is to clean them up and get a track built up. First I have an up the back blow out to deal with on the boy lol…
