Cable Tambour-Slats

Create your own customized tambour that looks great from both sides! Just thread the cables through the pre-drilled slats to make customized tambour doors. Slats feature an interlocking design to help keep them in line and inhibit warping. Slats come pre-drilled and are designed to work with a lead strip (sold separately).

(1) Pre-drilled solid oak slat

Rockler customer service is good they...
Rockler customer service is good they shipped me some replacement slats fairly quickly. Another note if your roll top is longer than 30 inches good luck finding cable. Editor's note: For longer cable one can use bicycle brake/gear shift cable, or what is commonly known as aircraft cable.

is slack required in the cable so the door flexes around the corners. Can you see between the slats after it is assembled ?
ralph h on Mar 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Leave no slack, you want it tight. You cannot see between the slats.
How can I replace the broken door?
Deb G on Oct 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Order replacement tambours. Cut them to the proper length. Assemble the tambours with bicycle cable. Use a wood screw (#6) to set and hold the cable alongside final tambour.
