Gary,

We are using Ipswich Pine it gave us a little darker golden color on the Birch wood. This is our third trailer that we have gut and rebuilt. We did a 1968 Aloha camp trailer for our daughter and a 1963 Safari. We did them both in Birch and used a natural color stain which just brings out the grain and leaves the wood light in color.

Dave,

Great work! Especially like the way the radius corners look. Really adds a lot. What did you use for the trim around the cabinets where they meet the wall? Also what did you use for the flooring -- and is it the same as the countertops (looks like they match)? Thanks for posting.

We used welting around the cabinets where the sheet metal. The floor is Marmoleum and we did use it for the counter tops. I cut down cove moding for the radius to make the counter/back splash in the kitchen and bathroom.

In addition to bulding a gorgeous trailer - you got yourself a really neat lamp there, Dave. I'd be careful about having that sitting on the counter during Baker City's open house. It would look just perfect in a certain 1951 Flying Cloud I'm very familiar with

Wow! Nice work, love the rounded cabinet corners. Not sure if I should even attempt them when I get to the cabinets, since since I have zero experience building cabinets. Sure do like the look. Well done.

B of (B&D) The lamp is velcrode down real well, but if it disapears I know where to look!

Teresa, Will they have a water truck like the one at the airshow at the Baker event? Just kidding, would be nice though.

I really admire your creative design. Is that a ceder wood floor in the shower? I assume you installed a vapor barrier below it as with a built up ceramic tile shower floor.

I have been meaning to ask you where you got the flexible fill line for your water tank shown in photo #134? This is a much better solution than using fittings and clear plastic line.

Dan,
I used Tennessee ceder covered with 2 oz glass cloth. The fill hose and the vent were purchased from West Marine. We also have boats and are very familiar with marine stores.

Wow. When I get up to Seattle this summer I'm going to come over and shake your hand. Very nice. I'll save my questions until then...

Now I've got to figure out why I can't get to your Photobucket page. Hmmm.... had to search on "tradewind rebuild," otherwise I just get the home page.

Dave, My compliments on your TW. Great work!

I especially like your choice of stain color. It does make the birch pop. I use mostly Minwax stains and finishes on my woodworking projects, too. Consistently a very good product line. For some applications I also us Deft lacquers.

The satin finish gives the whole trailer a nice warm glow. I use it often on furniture projects, but I always apply it over a coat or two of high gloss finish of the same product line. The old rule of thumb is that the higher the gloss the harder the finish, so the underlying coats of high gloss provide a very durable finish in those areas subject to wear but the satin top coats provide the appearance that is much more desireable. (this is in no way a criticism, just a suggestion as your finish looks great)
