Tambour Tool Cabinet

There are only a few hardware items in the tool cabinet on page 32. The small ring pulls (00S30.21), large ring pulls (00S30.22), and chest handle (00S30.23) are all available from Lee Valley.

You'll also need some plastic stem bumpers (28373) and a pair of keyhole hangers (28837). We purchased these from Rockler.

The tambour door requires some canvas for the backing. We purchased a piece of artist's canvas from a local art store.

To maintain the natural color of the wood, we didn’t stain the tool cabinet. Instead, we wiped on a coat of General Finishes' Seal-a-Cell to give the oak a warmer color and then sprayed on a couple coats of lacquer.
