Tambour coffee table built by Todd Plummer (toddcreatedwood.com). 40” long x 21” wide x 17” tall. Photo by the artist.

Curly Maple top is veneered in sequence over quarter-sawn poplar staves. Tops are edged with solid maple, holding continuous grain around the circumference of table, as well as book matched to top and bottom pieces. The tambour side slides 360 degrees around the table. The "half French" through drawer is accessible from either side by moving the tambour to the corresponding location. Table holds two compartments at either end behind the tambour. Awarded - Woodcraft Magazines, Excellence in Design award.

In his words, "The material I use is Certified sustainable lumber and when and where it is applicable I use localy harvested and milled woods. The tambour table along with all other furniture pieces I make, don't use plywood. I create my own substrates from solid wood and cross laminated veneers. The glue I use is non toxic and doesn't off-gas. There are no staples, nails, laquers, or eurethanes. I make my own schellac and waxes. Even the canvas on the back of the tambour is unbleached and organic."
