« Part 7: Front doors, Chapter 6 Part 8 of VW Bulli camper bus series Part 9: Loadspace bottom, Chapter 7 »

This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern.

This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary. So the final plan is a little (better) different. I used mostly Chery and Ash for the build.
. Comments are much appreciated.

Well Dutchy I am convienced you are one master woodworker.
If that was me I would have gone mental and been taken away muttering Dak dak long before now
and thats Dak dak not quack quack!

A very impressive piece of precision woodworking, all detailed, well documented and photographed as well.
Definately an artisan at work!

He’s gotta be a tool maker… He even makes this tool seem plausible.
