The set is easy to set up and use. The first bit (#54310) shapes the face of the stock; cutting from each face completes the contour of the ball. Afterwards, a second bit (#54312) is used to shape the socket. A third bit in the set (#49498) is used to shape the end of the tambour which provides a place to mount a pull for opening the completed tambour.
And, assembly is easy. Simply slide the slats together to create a beautiful flexible tambour that's perfect for creating your own roll top desk, breadbox, kitchen countertop storage areas and more.
