Veneered tambours

Tambours can be veneered over (249: 1 2D), and if the slats fit tightly the effect will be that of a single sheet of veneer. Timber for the slats should be of approximately equal colour to the veneer; they are finished to dimension, cramped/clamped together faces uppermost, veneered with a single sheet or matched pattern, and then carefully knifed through from the back on a fractionally curved surface to open the joints sufficiently for the passage of the knife. Some veneers may need scoring on the face before cutting and the edge sanding should only take off the whiskers or the cuts will show. Backing veneers are not necessary as the flexible backing will act as balancer. In a wellfitted veneer tambour the joints should not be visible.
