Tambour doors

I've got some sheets of Tambour left over from my project. If anyone needs any I'll cut it to the size you want. If needs be you can send me the handle and I'll fit it for you.

Yes, I have some 8ft x 4ft sheets. I had to buy a lot (for several projects including the Airstream) to get a decent price. I will email you (and post) a photo so you may see the color.

When stating sizes for Tambour it's important to say which measurement is the vertical slat. In the example (the large door under the sink) I am going to post the slat length is 18.75 inches and the length is 45.5 inches so the measurements would read: SL18.875" x L45.5"

the dye lots on the tambour vary on mid 70's AS . Is there a bit of grey in the grain of yours? If so, happy to purchase some for my kitchen area.

I don't see any grey. Dyes are reasonably consistent in shade. I think it's more that wood is a natural product and the variations of climate, where it's grown, genetics etc affect the way is stains. Just look at the pictures I posted and see if it suits you. Bear in mind that all natural products will stain in different shades so if it's not to your liking I suppose you could sand it and re-stain but that too could be a hit and miss deal.

Here are photos of what I have. When I get around to I'm going to install the same Tambour in all the doors.

I was determined not dismantle the sink unit to get the new Tambour door in and I succeeded by cutting an inch and quarter of the top and bottom inside slides away next to the spiral box and fed the narrow Tambour into the spiral from inside the cupboard using the cutaway. I used the narrow slat Tambour because it feeds in and out of the spiral much easier than the wider slats.

Also, the narrower Tambour is more flexible (the slats bend more easily than the wider slats. If the distance between the slides is equal from the spiral to the closed position and you don't want to dismantle whatever cabinet they're in, sometimes you can "spring" the new door in.

To be more precise folks I should have said that I have the left over cut-offs from full sheets.

Do you still have Tambour that will match a 71 airstream Overlander?
