You've done a bang-up job on the woodwork. I'm a wood finisher but you wouldn't want me to build anything!
Good job!

I appreciate the compliment. As a cabinet maker and furniture builder it was a fun challenge to redo the cabinets and counter. Just recently completed a cooktop cover and portable step with a compartment for ropes and stakes and the little things you use setting up.

Reid, how did you build your step? I am thinking of a similar thing, a box for miscellaneous set up stuff, jacks etc that doubles as a step.

The wood work is fantastic, I really like the color. It is nice seeing these older trailers getting restored and used again.

I made it out of 5/8" exterior plywood about 18" x 24" x 6" tall. It has a piano or continuous hinge on one long side and a ball catch on the inside so if it moves around while going down the road there isn't a hasp or metal catch to bang up or rub on the woodwork. The top has an overhang on each side to make it easier to pick up and it is just the size of our "grass" door mat. I finished it with an exterior oil semi transparent house finish. The sides are rabbetted and glued and stapled into the front and back and the bottom is set into a dado on all four sides so during assembly it is held captive.

Thumbs up Step details

Thanks very much, was thinking of making out of boards so it would be lighter, but the 5/8 sounds like an answer. Handles?

After seeing your trailer I don't think I'll look at mine anymore. Great job!!

I too rebuilt the cutlery drawer wider and higher to maximize the space. Used full extension, self closing guides so it holds itself shut during traveling. Never thought of a bow front counter top. Now on my to-do list.

What is below the cutlery drawer? Photos??

How do you hold up the counter top extension on the right? (I bet it's cherry!).

Below the silverware drawer is another drawer and below that is an access panel for the hot water heater. The counter extension is help by a wing attached to a cherry piece with a continuous hinge that is attached to the FG cabinet. Lift up the extension and rotate the wing 90 degrees to support it.
