« Part 11: Applying an Oil and Shellac Finish Part 12 of Small Secretary With Tambour Door series no next part

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware. Yes, I did end up going with the larger pulls. There were some very good points made about the larger and smaller pulls. However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build!

As always, I welcome your comments and questions!

Guy, I have been a member here for quite a while and I honestly believe that is my favorite project ever posted! Your attention to detail really paid off in the way those tambor doors and drawers slide! I wouldn’t change a thing!
Can’t wait to see what you do next.

That is an awesome looking desk. Looks like something you would see in a museum. Always look forward to your videos. How are you going to top this project?

A true masterpiece, thanks for documenting it so well. I’ve love to incorporate a tambour like yours into one of my projects one day.

I want to thank you, Guy, for making this video series.
Not realy my style of furniture but the way you go about your projects and show your medthods are great. Not so much talking but lots of information. The way you have broken this project up into smaller, mannageable parts have made me think that also I can indertake more complex projects. I have learned a lot.

Looking forward to another project from your hands.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the nice comment Siavoch. The tambour was a lot easier to make than I thought.

Thanks! This project is within anyone’s reach. And you hit the nail on the head. Breaking it down to smaller more manageable tasks.

Guy, looks fantastic! I really like the larger pulls that you used! Really can’t wait until your next project! I need to get busy on one myself. Thanks again for putting these out for us to enjoy and more importantly learn from.
