I wanted to double check to make sure and now that I am, Lacis carries
tambour handles and hooks. They now have a secure netserver and you can
order right off their web site which is www.lacis.com. The handle in
wood runs around $10 and the hooks (of varying sizes) about 3-4 each.
They also have books on the subject.
I think I'll give this a try someday. I have the instructions, but no
real reason do to it right now.
So many projects, so little time (and money).
