This project took me over a year, working one or two hours at a time after work and after the kids went to bed. The tambour was made using the Amana Tambour Door Set which allows you to create interlocking slats – no need to glue to fabric or connect with wires. I choose QS white oak because I love the way the rays look once it’s finished – but it’s really heavy to move!
The plans were from American Furniture Design, and yes…. I added 4 hidden compartments.
The finish was:
........TransTint Mission dye
........General Finishes Candelite oil stain
........General Finished Candelite gel stain
........multiple coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal satin
