How to: Cutting Bamboo Tambor Rolls (Paneling)
Need to make one of our popular Tambor Rolls shorter in height? No problem.
What you will need for the perfect finished cut:
1. A miter saw with a fine tooth blade (72 teeth or above)
2. Some shrink wrap or postal tape.
3. A marking pen and measuring tape of course.
The Tambor comes in a tight roll so you will want to maintain this during your cut. Tape the ends together.

Next determine the length needed and place a small mark on the Tambor Roll. You will then wrap more shrink wrap or postal tape around the mark where your cut will be. The tape/shrink wrap will aid in the extra clean cut so you do a splintering effect. Safety first, so if you have an extra hand this will go more smoothly with two people. With both ends supported by you and a friend, simply bring the blade down directly with a steady and consistent pressure.

The results, a factory cut ready to be installed as wainscot, on a tiki bar, or for an office or home project.
