I made this cabinet for a customer. It’s made out of european oak.
It’s the first time that i’ve made such a big and challenging project. The tambour door was new for me, but everything turned out beautifull.
For the tambour itself, i’ve gleued 25 slats on a piece of canvas to act as a hinge and i screwed a bigger piece of oak on the canvas as the main slat wich has 2 handles routed in it to lift up the tambour.
The cabinet measures roughly 1200mm high, 450mm deep and 900mm wide. Finished with 4 coats of wipe on poly and a coat of beeswax
Everything turned out good and both me and the customer were really happy with it.
Not bad for a 16 year old huh? :)
