    How the tambor is constructed can make a difference with this, too. A tambor design that interlocks will not show a gap as noticeably because there is technically no gap. The joint might be wider while it's bent, but it's still closed. Tambo constructed with wood over canvas isn't continuous wood, so gaps might show more at the bend extremes.

    So the project is installed and finished. There are many pieces I also made and or lended a hand in making that took place not in my shop but at work. I tend to work from home when something requires and good jointer or planer as to date our planer is junk.

    This is the best shot I have of the roll top installed. The drawer faces still need adjusting and hardware as since been out in tambour.

    This is a fridge unit/pantry/wet bar. I mostly just built the miter wrapped panels for this cut and edge banded the doors and drawers and installed it.

    Vanity in master bath.

    I built this in full. The revail son the upper doors of the towers are terrible as when one of my shop mates was mortising the hardware the made a giant mess. As a result the doors and drawers all had to be cut out of a new sheet of QS cherry mdf core. Whomever did it got their measurements a bit wrong.

    The L section of the kitchen. All European QS sicamore cardboard core lol..

    Floating shelf is solid hardwood per the request of client.

    The top revail of the stove is giant as the GC did not seem to care to build up stove and instal the proper vent below. Of it was done the giant revail closes right up. Pretty sure they have not even fasted the oven into the carcass. I canít tell you how often I see ovens stoves and or giant sub zero fridges installed without any fathers or anti tip brackets.

    I didn’t t build the island but I did built the solid hardwood table that hangs off it. Imop it should have had a third leg. The stain they chose to slather all the cherry in is a crying shame imop but hey I didn’t pay the bill.

    I made the mantle and bookcases in full. The center panel os reconstituted Macassar ebony otherwise know as poplar. Might as well be cardboard. The actual Macassar was beautiful but $1800 for a 5x5 sheet. The client chose this

    Stone has yet to be installed.

    The tiger maple desk. I built this in full. All draw born and MT joinery.

    This is all solid hardwood per the clients request. Sadly I Did not have enough material to make it free of mineral streaks and or glue the top up with boards of the same width and length as they turned the mitered corner. My boss sadly had to work with a budget so this is what they got. Originally it was priced as solid QS figured Euro syscamore. My boss sadly had no idea just how expensive such lumber is in clear and free and in 4/4 and 8/4 stock of the lengths we need. He also had no idea how hard it would be to find. We did find it but it would had cost like 7-8k for just the material. The client insisted in solid hardwood.

    Again the client chose just clear CV for the desk while they chose to stain one of the purest most beautiful white woods know to man “QS figured Euro Sycamore” I don’t get it but I also didn’t have to pay for it. I just got to have a blast building it all.

    Well not huffing mdf dust but you know it’s a give and take.

    Then there is this monstrosity. A $35K Macassar ebony dinning table. I wonít mention the makers name out of consideration. $35 k is fine with me I guess if you have it and thatís what you want to do but a pile of veneer with zero joinery.

    I have seen $150 dinning tables in custom homes actually way back in the 90Ēs and that thing was beautiful. $150k for a table is crazy as is $35 but the one for $150 you could at least understand why. This table not so much. The house with the $150 table also had 24K gold lighting and facultyís throughout its 27k square foot.

    I did like this coffee table quite a bit by the same maker. I donít know the cost as I did not ask.

    Again not to my taste but it is imop a very well designed piece and and I just love the macassar with the euro syc..

    I was however horrified watching it being bolted together vrs actual joinery. I get itís veneer and would be hard to design and build otherwise but it just does not get my respect as a result. Kinda like a tight mark made in in Taiwan or China..

    That was the architect not me. Wish I could take the credit. Well only if it had a third leg.

    Great idea in theory but it’s missing something imop and does not quite work in the end.
