I just finished a pewter shelf made out of reclaimed wormy red oak. I think I may have enough left and a spice rack will be next. I have never built a tambor door before so we'll se how it turns out. Thanks for the idea. Robert

Not to rain on your parade but...

If you're a real cook, the last place you want to store your spices is over the stove. The heat from cooking can ruin spices. And if the spices aren't hermetically sealed, the steam will do worse than the heat. A box of tea bags will be ruined in a week.

Now, that aside people DO love their spice racks, so Carry On!

If I were useing plain oak it would be best to buy tambor. Milling the parts for one would be time consuming but finding a source for the proper fabric backing may also take some doing. I will post pics. Robert

Are you going on vacation after you sell it like the guy on ebay did, or are you selling it for some kind of reasonable price! I may be getting lazy again. Or, maybe I'll hold out for someone else to start a cottage industry of spice racks. I can tear mine down to make a pattern for someone if the need it. Just let me know! Kinda busy at work now & will have to wait for next winter to attack it myself.

There is not that much contour where these are placed as you must already know. A little scribe work and a band saw and then a plumb cut should put you where you need to be. Robert

Gee Becky, I've don't believe there's going to be that much of a demand for a $260 spice rack... maybe an occassional "that's exactly what I've been dreaming about for the last 10 years" type of sale. Maybe for the Prevost crowd... nah, the owners probably have their designer just re-do the interior...

I've seen oak spice racks at Target, Tuesday Morning, World Market, etc. that could be adapted easily to mount in an Airstream. Now some custom cabinetry work - cabinet door relacement, inserts (when getting RID of those #@%!!## mirrors), interesting table top designs... replacement wood valences. Surprised I haven't seen more of that kind of stuff around - customized interior stuff, since not everyone is a junior woodchuck in the workshop...

I guess I'm not part of that crowd.....I bid $40!

When I was a preschooler my grandfather bought a kid-size roll top desk for me at auction. About 20 years ago the fabric backing on the tambour deteriorated and the slats separated into a couple of sections. I bought a section of plain white cotton fabric, smeared wood glue all over the back of the tambour and fixed the fabric to it. It is still in very good condition. Now you've got me wondering, what is the "proper fabric backing"?

You know, Speaking of tambor doors and mabey a little off topic here but. At a rally in Michigan I was told that the tambor in my 71 has been replaced. It now has a fabric back that has held up nice and works great opposed to the original paper backing that I was told that it had when built. There is one door, A front overhead right of the control gauges that does still has paper backing and is in 7 or 8 peices.

Ya know - it's a auction. If two people really want the item it may go for an obnoxious price. I've sold some crazy things on eBay for some prices that have mad me laugh!!!

Well, I guess the spice rack business wouldn't be too good after all. I missed this auction, but apparently only one guy wanted a spice rack this week! Dang, I wish I didn't miss this one!

You must have different Targets, etc than we do, I swear I have been in every Target, Kmart, Wally World, Tuesday Morning, Dollar General, kitchen store and thrift store between NC and here, and haven't found a single wooden spice rack. And I used to have a couple of them, gave them away years ago! Just another reason to be a pack rat, I guess I will have to make my own, anyway, to fit my big bottle of Emeril's and my seasoning salt, not to mention that big bottle of garlic powder! Must have some scrap wood around here someplace. Sandy
