So if you recognize what movie scene this is, you’ll know how I felt tonight about my entry steps… I am now working on the entry and the kneeboard/barrier/thing that keeps passengers up front from falling into the stairwell and also something to bolt the handrail onto. Since I’ve had the bus I have left […]
Plywood panels on steel frame
Sticking some plywood where it needs to go. To be covered by birch ply, plastic, aluminum, or other. Metal framing makes all of this so easy. Self drilling lath screws are perfect. The gap between is filled with wires, plumbing, nothing, or sound deadening material.
Panels and ply experiments
Goofing around with the panel stuff. I’m finding steel framing affords a lot of flexibility for interesting ways to connect stuff. Precision cutting plywood sucks. I hate working with wood. Got the last interior surfaces on the bed area. This was a pain in the butt too, because of tight clearances and the need to […]
Last bit of ceiling and more framework.
Getting that last bit of something done always seems to take the longest. I am pretty sure I just finished all the major structure for the interior – the steel tubing and such. To celebrate I re-hung the interior overhead panel in front too. I am undecided on cutting a big hole in the middle […]
Cabinet birch ply
Picked up some finish grade birch, some structural lower grade ply for storage shelves and carpet to line some things. I also picked up a pane of polycarbonate greenhouse panel, I will use some as trim somewhere I think, for translucent panel location. Dog is my co-pilot.
Some more kitchen cabinet frames and general fabrication
Not shown: horizontal stuff that makes that upper cabinet a little more rigid. But! This is a great example that I think demonstrates the versatility of steel tube. All this stuff gets covered with luan or plastic or something else. Here you can see I got tired of the PA hole. I could not seem […]
Whats it look like now?
I kind of forgot what it looked like, so I backed out of the covered area. Now I can work in the shade doing fab work instead of frying in the sun. I don’t know why I didn’t do that the last couple weekends.
Kitchen Pantry Cabinet
It’s a full height slide out.
Kitchen cabinet frames
One of the kitchen cabinets coming together. This is the largest unit by volume. Designed to hold dishes, tools, other kitcheny things. Next up is a full height pull out pantry and some wall and overhead cabinets. Drawer clamped in “for illustration”. I’ll paint the frame before the slider installation.
Door actuator details
It’s technically an auto UNlock, so you don’t slap the door open pneumatic switch and just stress the hell out of the door and it’s hinges. The way it will work is air goes to unlocker ram first, once it engages the latch and releases, air switch allows air to flow to opening side of […]
