Wood Veneer Tambour Sheet

I recently bought a piece of Omega National Wood Veneer Tambour Sheet in Red Oak, Part No. NPV3O to make a tambour door for the cabinet space that used to hold the Microwave in my van. I have two left-over pieces that I would like to sell: #1. A 47-1/2" wide x 21-3/4" high piece with a 1-1/2" lead slat on the bottom. #2. A 27-1/2" wide x 13-3/8" high piece with NO lead slat. Both pieces of tambour are wood veneer with a MDF core, poly/cotton backing, 1/2" flat slats and are unfinished, preflexed and sanded ready for finish. They can be cut to the desired size. Various styles of tracks are readily available on the internet. I am asking $50 for the large (#1) piece plus shipping (~6 lbs.) and $20 for the small (#2) piece plus shipping (~2 lbs.). Located in Prescott AZ.

Any pics of your tambour door install? I was thinking of going that route, unfortunately I will need white when the time comes.

Attached are a couple of photos of my tambour door, the second showing the tracks I used (garage-door style); there are a couple of other styles of tracks available: spiral and spring-loaded roller (like a window blind).

I have only seen unfinished tambour material which can be stained or painted.

That looks great! I am not really sure why they aren't more popular in the US. I have 2 sliding doors under my sink that overlap and it sucks because you dont have good access to the stuff in the middle of the cabinet. Do the tambour doors rattle when heading down the road?

No, they don't rattle. The tambour is a fairly snug fit in the track.

Cool! I had some concerns about that, glad to hear that is not an issue!

The large piece has been sold but I still have the small piece (27-1/2" wide x 13-3/8" high with NO lead slat) for sale for $20 plus shipping (~2 lbs.).
