I'm tired of sittin around waiting to heal up so today I pulled the rear endcap. There is only the water heater one interior panel left (just below the rear window) but it has some threaded rods coming all the way thru the wall...that will wait for another day.

The dent in the upper corner that can be seen in post #1 popped right out with only slight pressure from the inside. There is a slight ridge that remained...I can minimize it with a roller...I'm very pleased with how it came out.

Since it never got out of the 30's today, it's time to start on the interior rebuilds...I started by re-staging the bath components in the garage...
1st photo is exactly as it was dissassembled...the 2nd is the required upgrades...

We made it home about 2:00pm today from the last 2010 camping trip, giving me enough time to start a bath cabinet mockup. One of the few things I find tougher than plumbing is wood working...this time I just going to PLAN on building the stuff twice! I'm starting out with large chunks of rough cut pine, ripping it to size and planing it smooth.

I am going to try for some rounded corners and slightly upgraded cabinet doors, along with some minor dimensional changes so I'm going to mock up stuff with the pine before I tear into the 'good wood'

Its wet and chilly so I'm going to play with some interior options...I want round corners on the woodwork...I know I can buy curved plywood but I usually try different methods so here goes one...

My bath mockup needs a round corner to transition over the tub...so I cut and glued a 6"dia x 3/4 thick hex...then I used my lathe (it REALLY hurt to turn wood on my metal lathe!) to round it out...

now I need a plan to slice it into 4 - 90 degree sections...

Safe and easy way is with a jigsaw. Table and band saws are not as safe or easy to use with curved parts.

Maybe build a large box jig that wrapped entirely around it, with a slot on the top wide enough to drop your circular saw blade through? Not sure if you can get the required depth on that though...

Anyway, your turned "column" is looking great. It'll make for some very sturdy corners.

I would use the bandsaw and a jig.
