I got the inspiration for this box by one that Jim Sellers posted, the link to his project is below. Thanks Jim!
I used Morado, also know as Pau Ferro, for the box and Maple for the tambours. My first time using a router with a bushing guide with templates. I did a lot of internet research regarding how to make the tambour top and found some great videos on You Tube that explained the process. I did use some Poplar for the bottom and dyed it using Kiwi Black Shoe Dye (it works great, you just need to be sure to sand of the raised grain after the first coat). It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. The finish is just several coats of Deft Semi Gloss Poly.
