MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Larissa Huff
I design, build, and finish furniture (and anything else I find interesting) from local Pennsylvania hardwoods. I showcase the material and joinery as the primary design details in my work. I still love to teach. I have been designing and teaching long and short form woodworking courses for nearly 1o years.

Introduction to Making Tambour Doors

A multidisciplinary class with a fantastic end result! 

You will work on making a small cabinet (photo is pending) with a tambour door that will build on your woodworking and power tool knowledge.  It is a great introduction to tambour door making and all the creative ways in which the mechanism can be used.

Although cabinet making is secondary to the goal of the class, you’ll also learn and practise techniques that will improve all your future cabinet making projects. 

If you are just getting going and have a little bit of knowledge under your belt or have been working for a while and want to add some new features to your projects, this class will get you miles down the road.  You’ll also end up with a beautifully elegant piece that fits seamlessly into a wide array of styles. 

Learn How To Make a Small Cabinet with a Tambour Door

In this hands-on class, you will learn the complete process of making tambour doors from concept to finished product. You will learn how to:

  • design tambours
  • create the templates for the routing tracks
  • create the shape and leverage the grain of the slats
  • use a fabric backing
  • design and create the door handles
  • finessing the tambours for a perfect fit

This is a jammed packed five days, and we’ll make sure you get to put all the theory that you’re learning into practice.

The goal is to complete your piece, but not necessarily finish it. An oil wax finish is available if time allows.
