  1. Rosewood Breadbox

    The wife says "If you want to build be something for Christmas, I'd like a new breadbox". Knowing what that meant my only question was "What type of wood"? She saw me installing a Honduran Rosewood inlay on a jewelry box and said "That's pretty. How about that? Gulp.. "OK" This was my first...
  2. Floating entertainment center with tambour doors

    We needed a new entertainment center, and we decided we liked the idea of a floating stand. My significant other was really into tambour doors. I'd never done them before. They are hard to get right! I took my time-really wanted them to slide easy, but have enough friction to stay...
  3. Pearl's Laptop

    I got the inspiration for this portable writing desk from the "Treasure Chests" book from Taunton Press. The original desk was made of camphor wood in the mid 1800's and was owned by a sea captain by the name of Elisha Palmer. All I had to go by for the project were the pictures in the book and...
  4. Tambour Lid Box

    I got the inspiration for this box by one that Jim Sellers posted, the link to his project is below. Thanks Jim! http://widgets.lumberjocks.com/project/97198.jpg[/img][/url[/URL]] I used Morado, also know as Pau Ferro, for the box and Maple for the tambours. My first time using a router with...
  5. Large tambour (covering a TV)

    I made a large tambour (102cm x 68cm) with the Amana tambour set. Thanks, lockdown. The tambour itself is pretty routine (there are plenty of posts here on that), except maybe the relatively large size. I went by the instructions (i.e. milled the wood to exactly what they said) and it worked...
  6. Credenza with Tambour Doors

    This project was inspired by Poritz and Studio . They have made a number of pieces with tambour doors that are simply stunning. I used walnut and ash for the entire piece. I tried to integrate the ash in a manner to break up the walnut. To make the tambour doors I made some 1/2" plywood out...
  7. Rollt Top Desk

    This is a project that I did as a commission for a customer in town. She had a very tight spot where she wanted a desk to keep lots of stuff just like she had with her old RR style roll top desk. We came up with this single pedestal design with enclosed book case on top. Doesn't get her all the...
  8. Roll Top Desk

    This is one of my early commissioned pieces. An architect wanted a desk for his wife, to be in a style similar to his own desk. He gave me drawings of a front, side, and top view to start from. I added my own design elements, such as the cherry banding, handles, and so forth and made the desk...
  9. Roll Top Bread Box

    Around Thanksgiving time my mother mentioned she would like to have a roll top bread box but she said that she knew I was too busy to make it by Christmas. So after finishing up a few other gift projects I started in on this. It was quite an adventure. Today is Dec 23 and I'm putting on the last...
  10. Cutting Boards, first attempt, unfinished.

    My first attempt at cutting boards. I hit the lumberyard and found some nice "special" hard maple for 3.49 a board foot. I took out of there two boards about 10 ft in length x 4"w. The two boards were slightly different shades. It ended up being about 6 brd ft. Anyways. I dragged it with me to...
  11. Tambour Top Box

    This project appeared in the April 2011 Issue of Woodworkers Journal, and was designed by Sandor Nagyszalanczy. This box is ideal as a valet for keys, change, money clip etc. One of the coolest things about it is that the tambour opens and closes when you open/close the drawer. This little box...
  12. Tambour Box

    I stumbled upon the plans and an instructional video for this Tambour box online and thought it would be a fun build - and it was! It turns out that the original plans were published in the April 2011 Issue of Woodworker's Journal and has been made by many LumberJocks. My box was made from...
  13. Recording Studio Roll Top Console

    This is a Roll Top Console for a Recording Studio. It is made out of Melamine both 3/4" and 1". The Tambour length is 59" by 3/16 and the arch in the front of the desk is 6". The monitors are recessed into the top by 3" so to clear the Tambour. The two bottom compartments have mounting racks...
  14. Tambour Box

    The appealing of this box is the surprise of the movement. And everyone who opens the box, takes a breath and Wooooww factor gets in scene. (The problem is that everyone wants one !!) Pull the drawer, and the tambour rolls back. http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf Box is made of cedar...
  15. Oval Tambour Desk

    This desk is a member of a lineage that has persevered since the late 70's. It is made with plain figure White Hard Maple and Birdseye maple. It is 40 inches wide and 28 inches deep. Closed up it is 39 inches tall and open it is around 50 inches tall. While showing last year's desk I often...
  16. First Kitchen

    This is my first kitchen cabinet project. It took me one year and ten months to complete this project working a couple of hours on weeknights and Saturdays and Sunday afternoons. To give you some idea of the scale of this kitchen…the island is 4 feet wide and 11 feet long. The homeowners wanted...

    The Beginning Stages.. Plans and Poplar.. Well, now that my workbench is finished I can finally start on some badly needed tool storage and organization. I have been tossing around ideas for a tool cabinet for a while now but have put it off in order to not get distracted and prolong the bench...

    Part 1 This is the first of a multi-part series detailing the construction of a small secretary built in the Federal style. One of the more interesting details of this piece are dual horizontal tambour doors that cover the drawers in the top hutch. As always, I welcome your questions and comments!
