New Table (yoohoo pictures!)

So, I decided I wanted a "real" table, and that the dinette would serve better as a bed, and that I really didn't want a couch....

So here are the results so far, a work in progress. I'll return later and post "finished" images to share.



Couch removed (fear not, I have ever stick of wood and the cusions stowed away, just in case) and new cleats installed to hold the rear and one side.

On the side I'm screwed to the cleat the forms in the inside of the frame there, nice and solid. Below the window I could only find 2 (!?) studs, so I tied into them and added some more screws to the paneling in between - that's what Sunline did with the couch as well so I followed their lead.

Since it's 30" off the deck, it would hit the middle of the door side window, so I am building it short, leaving about 11" on the side which matches the 11" taken up by the "hamper" on the other side. As a result the table is symmetrical to the walls of the trailer, with the hamper on one side, and an open space on the other that I think will get a trash can in the end.



Here's the table top in place, checking the fit of it all, and just how square my cuts and Sunline's construction are. Not too bad.



A lower angle, that leg is just clamped there, I'm not yet certain of where it will go exactly.

The electrical wiring there will be concealed in a compartment that I'll fab up once I get the table in place. I think I'm also going to do a mod there.

I want to switch to regular fuse holders, the kind with a twist cap, and add some switches so I can power the various light circuits for testing and just because...

Well there it is, at the beginning. More to follow.

Thanks for sharing. Looking good!

Is that a piece of 3/4 inch veneer board top?

John

Done. Now to build that cubby to house the wiring and add a bit more storage...


(fixed)








Table top and leg are 3/4" Plywood with an oak venere added on the visible edge.

Rest is 1x2 (took some time to find STRAIGHT ONES at the local Lowes)

Visible fasteners are reused S2 square head screws from the original couch.

Top is painted "India Ink" black.

Leg and other parts are finished with Golden Oak stain. The leg also sports a coat of Orange Shellac.

Back and side edges where they meet the trailer are lined with a type of weather stripping I found. It was originally a Z shape, half hard plastic, half vinyl covered foam. I cut the hard plastic off and stapled the resulting L shape to the back of the table, to cover the screw heads back there. The side I used a flat piece of the same material which ends up looking like a black version of that brown stuff they used at the factory to make a "bead" on the inside corners.

I think it pretty damn spiffy, myself

Looks good!!!

Your 1st pic is not showing. I think you have a space rigth after the IMG start command.

Thanks for sharing. Seeing mods is very cool. We build off your ideas!!!

John

That is a real nice looking job. Here is the pix John mentioned was missing.

Thanks! (I fixed it in the post too)

Again, there will be more as things change.
