I have had this on my mind for a LONG time. My wife and I both have solid Oak “school” desks in our office I rebuilt them many years ago. She is always fussing that mine needs cleaning up. Then she does it, moves everything around and I can’t find it. I don’t want a tall back like on this roll top design so I guess I will have to design my own version. I am thinking about as high as where it breaks, maybe a bit higher. I want to be able to look over the top. I have plenty of dry Red Oak.
Oak Tambour already made is not cheep. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=4968 Or I just might make the Tambour from scratch…....... YEA I can make the jig and produce my own…..........................
