Tambor Doors

  • DICTUM Neideralteich Germany (map)

Back for my tenth or eleventh year teaching for DICTUM, an amazing tool dealer with a calendar of classes far more diverse and intriguing than anywhere else I know about. The students are diverse as well, mainly from Germany, but often from elsewhere in Europe. I’ll be teaching two week-long classes, first in the small town of Niederalteich, about an hour out of Munich, and the second week at their new workshop in Munich.

Tambors are fun sliding doors that are less commonly used today, although they should be. They can slide around a corner and completely disappear into the case or cabinet they are built into. In a situation where there is not enough room to swing a hinged door, quite likely a sleek sliding tabor can do the same task. We are going to build small cases and play with some different sliding tabor designs.
