I am attempting my tambour box. I have a dumb question however. How do you determine how wide the tambour lid should be? Is there a formula for the gap needed from side to side?
thanks for your guidance.
Really neat project! Glad you dug this up. And I also agree about the tambour lid part. There is nothing in the .crv files about that. As far as the width... I would assume it is the same width as the rear of the drawer, which is 10.25", is that correct? And I also assume he is using a very thin wood since the pocket in the sides for it are .3222. He did say that he made that track wider since it snagged. I do wonder how deep he made each of the grooves for the tambour. If the wood is 1/4", it would have to be around .125" I assume?
Again, thanks for finding this and thanks to the OP for sharing.
