This Krenov-inspired cabinet on stand incorporates elements of tambour. The tambour elements were hand assembled as this is a one-off. If working with small batches I usually devise jigs to both standardize components and speed some processes up. Aligning the tambour strips into a pattern was critical, especially where the doors meet and the outside edges. The strips combine both Maple and Black Limba to form a subtle, cohesive pattern. Inspiration for the project originated with the concept of tambours. Hand assembly of the tambour strips took a while and became more exciting as the pattern grew wider! I’m drawn to this design and enjoy viewing it.
