A storage unit I made to recover wasted space in my (quite small) RV. Even though it’s thin, it serves a purpose in providing a perfect location for laptop and other personal electronics storage during travels.

It’s made from 1/2 inch baltic birch, glued and nailed. Curved ply was done by kerfing the back and bending it.

The whole thing rests on the existing TV mount… and I added just a couple screws to keep it from rattling… so pretty much entirely reversible back to factory condition to ensure resale value.

Finished with some stain and General Finishes High Performance, applied with an Earlex HVLP. (So easy this is now my go-to durable finish.)

Great idea. I have done a number of “custom projects” for our RV and know how helpful added storage and organization can be. Yours looks like it is a good fit and matches nicely.
