First time making a roll-top (aka tambour) door. The hardest part was rounding the top of each original slat so the pieces could easily follow the S groove. I thought I had it done right until the door was installed. Discovered the 1/8 router round-over bit had not done enough, so since the lats were already glued, I took my newly sharpened cabinet scraper to shave the lats. I must of sharpened it 3 times before the door flowed smoothly.
The design was from a WoodJournal project and the templates was good for that size box. I’ll probably make another breadbox for the church Christmas bazaar, but I will make it bigger. This box only holds 1 + 1/2 loaf of bread and the top shelf is too small to hold anything. The sliding cutting board is a nice design feature.
The box is made of cherry wood, but the absolute best feature is that the wife really likes it. Comments and constructive criticism are welcomed – Thanks!
