Mods to Make Lower Cabinet Space into Drawers

Thanks to Force's post, I decided to also build drawers for under the dinette. I will also take his idea to add 2 drawers under the master bed. But that will be tomorrows work.







While I was in there, I decided to add support to the seats. They Really need it.

Looks great. Funny, DW has the same step stool. This camper isn't designed for short people

Yeah, even though she's 6' tall she uses this to get into the cabinets over the TV & the shelves in the outside kitchen.

Dave, did you screw those supports in with the same screws 1 1/2 inch?

Actually they are 1 1/4" screws just slightly angled them so they won't poke through the other side. Plus is pre-drilled and screwed all of the cross members too. I'm surprised how Jayco built the seats. They don't look like they will really hold much weight over time.

Scott, every screw you see in this pic is new, I added them all for better support.

Well the last 3 drawers are done. Just have to wait for the drawer fronts to dry before I can add the semi gloss poly.
Thanks for the ideas Tom.

looking good Dave. I never thought about that open area near the bunks for a drawer.

Yeah, that space under the bed is large but harder to get into. This drawer is like 13 1/2"W x 30" D. Wife loves it. Plus she still have enough under-bed storage for extra blankets and stuff!

Awesome. Looks like you moved the vertical supports closer to the center so you could get wider drawers? I considered that, wish I had now that I see yours.
