Tambour Making at the Haystack School of Crafts

My latest Adventure in Woodworking took me to the of in Deer Isle, Maine.

Wendy Maruyama is an icon in the woodworking world, as well as a trailblazer for other women to enter the furniture design and fabricating profession.  I leaped at the opportunity last August to take a workshop with her about doors at the beautiful Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine.  I made many new friends, ate delicious food, learned a lot, and gained inspiration for new projects to come!

Haystack is on the national register of historic places and was awarded the American Institute of Architects.  The architect was Edward Larrabee Barnes.

I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as exploring tambour doors.  The limitations and usage seemed to be pretty straightforward.  Wendy led the class through a series of exercises that resulted in what I would consider to be optimal outcomes with respect to our individual skills.  Our class took the basic

    We had a commercial, over here in the Netherlands, known by the sentence
    “goed verhaal lekker kort “. That’s this trailer: “good story nice and
    short” :-)

    They’re ok, could be better., September 4, 2013

    This review is from: TRINITY 36″ x 14″ Wire Shelving Plastic Liners 4pk – Clear (Misc.)
    They are paper thin. The problem is when you shift things around on the shelves, the liners bend. They would bend down causing a upside down u shape. So if you move stuff around constantly (like to make room for other stuff), it gets annoying having to readjust the liners to stay flat on the shelve. To give you a visual. Place a piece of paper on a flat surface, then place two heavy objects on each end. Then without lifting the object slide one of the objects. The paper will bunch / fold up. That is what happens with these liners.

    They need to make these with non-flexible plastic, so they won’t bend.

    I guess they are ok, but i suggest people just take a cardboard cut it to 36″ x 14″ and diagonally cut out the corners. That would be better than these liners.

    Ridiculously Thin!, March 18, 2013

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: TRINITY 36″ x 14″ Wire Shelving Plastic Liners 4pk – Clear (Misc.)
    I purchased 3 sets of these shelf liners for just over fifty bucks (twelve liners total). That’s a heck of a lot of money for “shelf liners”! When they got here & I opened the package I was completely shocked by how paper-thin these are. I could have boxed them back up & returned them, but then I would have lost all the money I paid to have them shipped here, as well as the money it would cost to ship them back! If you plan on using these liners in an area where people won’t generally see your shelves, do yourself a favor & just line the shelves with a piece of box/cardboard! Unlike myself, you might be able to respect yourself the next morning. 🙁

    IT does the job but the sheets are pretty thin. I thought they would be a little thicker. I also had to trim the sheets to make them fit.
