I built this in woodshop class when I was 15 years old. Not the typical bird house project.The Black Walnut cost a pretty penny back then. I made all the brass knobs at work.

Very nice! I’m in the process of building one right now. How did you make the groove to accept the tambour?

Matt, I made a smaller offset Jig for the router to follow and just cut a 3/4 wide slot along the whole side. I had to make a jig also to glue the tambours to the canvas.

Rocky,

That’s an incredible rolltop, and even more impressive that you made it in high school! Thanks for posting.

Very sturdy and divinely masculine. Plus, constructed of my favorite wood. Tambour as a shop project? I went to the wrong school. Very, very nice.
