Very nice work. Looks very original.


I too also work while on the road. Terrific idea on the desk and chair. My DH would kill me though if I touched a single thing. She only gave me permission to put lights over the bed and in the cargo hold. That is about all you will ever seen done with me.

When I build furniture, I hit it with my branding iron and then write the brand, color, and part # of the stain in an inconspicuous place. Cabinet looks good!

My wife prohibited me from drilling any holes to add reading lights above our bed. She did, however, allow me to drill holes THROUGH our Starcraft 235fb (Jayco 23 fb clone) so that we could mount our porta-bote to the side of the RV.

I really like your cabinets....nice job. We added a store bought set of shelves behind the dinette. It is only about 3 feet high and comes level with the back of the dinette seat. I think they make them in cherry (close match to cabinets) but we just used a white one.
