Very nicely done sir. Does that go in the kitchen? It’s always nice to have more counter space in the fifth wheel. Mine has a flip up little counter, but my wife always puts it down. I don’t get it. Why can’t we leave it up.

Wow! That is nice. I should build something like that for my little portable grill.

Hello firefighter….’ Yelp between the stove/frig. and on the other side the table and chairs. It has to be skooted over to the adjacent living room opposite wall, when the 16’ slide come in for travel. I made one errior that I wish now I had done. Those drawers with draw from the stove’s side, it would have been nice, if I had the for site, to make them come out also on the table and chair side too. The back side of those drawers casing’s are solid across.
Can you make out the plastic cutting board,,stored just under the top ???

Dallas, a good friend of mine made a lot bigger one for their BBQ grill, tiled the complete top.

those 4 collums are hollow, 3/4” t. oak with mitered sides.

Hi andreasy, Upper right of the six picture group, your free to copy. I draw a lot of my own prints and cutting list. I enjoy doing it and fitting a project in where it should go, there are always crierias when you invisioned the project. L<w><h> and where it fits in. As you can see my way of drawings are a little out of date now, but one I was trained in. Using a sliding parallel bar and triangles, that way on paper, I can put them together in my head and if something doesn’t look right or just plain don’t fit. An eraser is easer for me to use, than cutting a new board. What you might do is to go to one of these Kitchen Stores in malls and see what they have to offer, taking a pencil, paper and tape along.

Any help one way or the other, I am here.

Have your say...
