I found some tambour material at the reverse Garbage Shop in Brisbane on the weekend.
Sure beats having to make it, it was only small so I decided to make a Toy garage first up just to see if it worked OK
The garage was made with a jig and once I had routed out the track I clamped everything together just to make sure it would work.
In photo No 4 and 5 there is a temporary cross piece fitted at the base of the doorway , just there to keep everything square.
Everything worked well so I added a base and then a roof task complete
I then ventured on and decided the material was a size that a tambour door bread box would look nice.
I again made a template jig to route out the side tracks.
I then dusted off the Milescraft design kit and routed the ends with the design.
They looked reasonable but a bit on the bland side so I then decided to fill each with different wood fillers to highlight the image.
I then did the tops, one I finished with gold Rub and Buff and added a gold Bread sign on the front using my scroll saw.
I then ran the trimmer around the edges with a Vee groove bit to accentuate the edges.
A finishing sand and then a couple of coats of lacquer and they were finished.
