In this episode, Paul walks you through the steps to sizing the wood for creating a tambour door for the shoe tidy cabinet. Small details make a huge difference to the functionality. Tricks of the trade do make the elements of the tambour consistent, and you will watch Paul develop bevels and chamfers that match exactly, with no need for measuring. An alignment guide and a cross-cutting system ensures the perfected tambour, ready to assemble. Additional techniques maintain the standards of hand tool craftsmanship, and in the end, we have a fully made tambour replete with fabric and support rail in place.
