Roll Top Desk Tambour Repair

An antique roll-top desk is worth repairing and preserving. When restored and polished, they give an office a rich and comforting feel. Often times, the tambour of the desk is in bad shape and needs to be re-glued and restored. The proper tambour and cloth must be used to repair the back of the tambour. Human hands cannot tear the natural cotton twill canvas that must be fitted to the back of a tambour. Each cross piece of the roll-top must be put back together like a delicate puzzle to restore the antique desk back to its lovely antique patina and quality.Restored antique roll-top desk

Replacing Roll Top Desk Cloth

Roll-top desks feature a flexible tambour which is usually made from several wooden slats. When pushed or pulled, this flexible door is able to glide along the tracks to open or close the desk. Over time, the backing material that’s used may wear, tear, or decay, resulting in a roll-top door that doesn’t function properly anymore. Luckily, replacing a roll-top desk cloth with a new backing is possible and it can be glued onto the slats after removing the assembly from the desk. As a result, you will have a fully functional roll-top.
