Unlike ordinary tambours, there is no need for cloth, glue or wires. Each slat meausures approximately 1/2" x 1" and the minimum radius for the tambour door is 3-1/2". The set is easy to set up and use. The first bit shapes the face of the stock; cutting from each face completes the contour of the ball. Afterwards, a second bit is used to shape the socket. A third bit in the set is used to shape the end of the tambour which provides a place to mount a pull for opening the completed tambour. The assembly portion of this is very simple. You would simply slide the slats together to create a beautiful flexible tambour that's perfect for creating your own roll top desk, breadbox, kitchen countertop storage areas and more.
