Welcome to the forum, Peter.

Almost any project with a door on it can be made with a tambour door. I have seen magazine articles for desks, tool cabinets, hanging cabinets.

Fine Woodworking - Search: tambour

PS I would take out an online subscription to Fine woodworking........

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Hi dunnepet, the tambour is something a little elaborate to make,not impossible obviously,traditionally is made using canvas as substrate and on it you will glue the pieces that will form the tambour..today amana tools make a set of router bit that simplify a lot the process without compromising the look and the strenght..take a look on the amana tool site..i can't post any link yet because i'm a new entry..
