NEW: MDF Plus Tambour Panels

MDF Plus Tambour Panels

Our new MDF tambour panels are CNC’d from MDF “Plus” material, which has an increased internal bond making the “plus” grade ideal for intricate machining. The material is a popular choice for residential, retail, and commercial markets as its uniform density profile provides a stable, smooth surface for painting.

MDF Plus is made from 100% recycled or recovered wood and holds FSC and CPA (Composite Panel Association) certifications. It also adheres to ECC (Eco-Certified Composite) standards. Additionally, MDF Plus meets CARB and EPA formaldehyde emissions regulations, helps to reduce or eliminate the carbon footprint, and uses at least 85% wood fibers sourced within 250 miles of the manufacturing facility.

MDF Plus tambour panels will be introduced in our most popular size for cabinet panels (24″W x 46″L x .25″T) in 3 styles – #100 (bead), #304 (square), and #403 (cove).

MDF tambour Panels are the latest addition to our line of USA-made tambour panels which includes 19 flexible profiles and 8 solid profiles. Species available for solid American hardwood tambour profiles include: Red Oak, Alder (solid only), Cherry (solid only), Hard Maple, White Oak, Walnut, and Paint Grade (Paint Grade Poplar is used for flexible panels while Paint Grade Brown Maple is used for solid panels).

Solid & Flexible American Hardwood Tambour Panels

Made in America from American hardwoods, Tambour ships ready to finish in paint or stain. Flexible Tambour has a thin backer, allowing Tambour to be used as a wrap and bend around curves. Solid Tambour makes an ideal insert for cabinet doors, or as full panels on cabinetry and furniture.

Flexible Tambour Panels: Our flexible panels are made with a thin material backer which allows the tambour to be used on both curved and flat applications. Multiple sizes work with both furniture and architectural applications. Ideal for both commercial and residential applications. Unfinished, ready to stain or paint. 48” and 96” lengths in stock. Available up to 120” long. Flexible tambour panels are available in: Red Oak, Hard Maple, White Oak, Walnut, and Paint Grade Poplar.

Solid Tambour Panels: Solid tambour profiles measure 24” x 46” and are ideal as inserts for cabinetry doors, or as full panels on cabinetry and furniture. CNC machined from solid American Hardwoods. Ideal for both commercial and residential applications. Unfinished, ready to stain or paint. Solid tambour panels are available in: Red Oak, Alder, Cherry, Hard Maple, White Oak, Walnut, and Paint Grade Maple.

Materials: Both solid & flexible tambour panels are USA-made from North American Hardwoods.

A) Alder: While still a hardwood, alder is relatively soft compared to other North American Hardwoods. It has a light, uniform color with a subtle, straight grain pattern.

B) Cherry: A straight grained smooth textured hardwood, Cherry is considered one of the premier North American hardwoods, along with Walnut. Cherry can vary from rich red to reddish brown and will darken with age, especially when exposed to light.

C) Hard Maple: Clear Hard Maple is a closed grain species that is ideal for stained finishes. The color of hard maple ranges from nearly white to off-white cream.

D) Paint Grade Poplar: Poplar is a straight grained, smooth wood that has a wide variation in color. It isn’t uncommon to see white, green, purple and brown within the same piece of wood. Due to this, Paint Grade Poplar is best used for painted finishes.

E) Paint Grade Hard Maple: We use Brown Maple for our solid panel paint-grade option. It provides a smooth surface for painted finishes and can be stained with dark colors. Our paint-grade hard maple panels can vary in color from cream to brown and are not color matched during panel processing.

F) Red Oak: A beautiful open-grain species with an orange-reddish hue. Its wider grain results in a subtle wave pattern. Due to its wider grain pattern, staining results in the grain pattern becoming darker where the grain is closed and lighter where the grain is more open.

G) Walnut: A dark-brown hardwood with a grain pattern that can be either straight or irregular. Its rich brown color can have hints of black and gray. Due to its color and grain pattern, it is typically finished in a clear stain only.

H) White Oak: A tighter grain than Red Oak, White Oak is also ideal for stain finishes. Its color is a light to medium brown or even tan with a grayish undertone. It’s narrower grain pattern tends to run straighter and tighter than Red Oak.

NEW: Angled Metallic Accent Trim

Our new Angled Decorative Bar will be available in 8 bright and bold finishes, matching our other metallic accent components. Finishes include Brushed Aluminum, Chrome, Polished Brass, Satin Brass, Satin Stainless, Titanium, Warm Bronze, and Flat Black.

The Angled Bar, measuring .438”W x .25”T x 96”L, can be trimmed on-site and installed using DOD’s double-sided ultra-high bond (UHB) tape. Resistant to heat and moisture, UHB tape makes an ideal adhesive for Metallic Accent Trim to cabinetry, furniture, and more. With the addition of the Angled Bar (SKU 01200250-1), we now carry 7 Metallic Accent Trim profiles in 8 finishes(!).
