The "Pine Cone", formerly "Woody" is nearing completion. Sort of. I still
have to cut and fit 3 or 4 panels for the bathroom walls. The bathroom
door needs to be redone now that the opening is a half inch narrower.
It still needs kitchen drawers, the floor needs to be cut and
installed, the support for the wood burning stove needs to be built, (yes, wood burning stove.)
the table needs to be covered in the same material as the floor, the
speakers and sub woofers need to be covered with metal speaker grills.
(Yes, Sub woofers. Plural.) And I still need to cut and install
somewhere between 75 and 100 feet of 1&1/2 inch to 2 inch wide strips
of brass. When all that's done then I have to put on one coat of
walnut oil every 5 days for about a month and a half to give the wood
the DEEP satin lustre I'm looking for. Altogether, with what I've
applied so far and what I still have to apply, there'll be about 7 or
8 coats of oil in the wood. It's already starting to do a "tiger
stripe maple" effect. VERY nice.
Of course, when
all of the interior is done there is still the outside to do. Paint
the frame black, Replace the old tired 2000 pound suspension with a
3500 pound suspension. Replace the tires
and wheels with my extra Jeep
wheels in the garage. Spray on black rubber rock guard on the front of
the trailer to stop rocks from chipping the fiberglass any more.
Replace the front and back foggy crackly plexiglass windows
the outside of the trailer the same color as the Jeep.
And amongst all of this, at some point I'll be installing the wood
