I roughed in a little cabinet and mounted my heater on it just to see how I liked it. The open side will face the end of the horseshoe bench that is yet to be fabricated and installed. Because there will not be enough room between the cabinet and the bench for drawers to pull out or for a door to swing open, I will likely rig up a sliding door on it.

Looking good Slats! Those Dickinson heaters are cool.

Those heaters are hot, not cool. : ) I do like the looks of the thing. Rather rustic. I'm using an old fashioned catalytic heater in mine.

Slats, think tambour roll up door for your cabinet. Airstream used a lot of them in the 70s and beyond. Just a thought, and probably not a good one at that.

Thanks for the suggestion, David. I fished out a couple of shelf fronts from the pile of stuff I pulled out of Hal in the deconstruction phase. They are 3/4"x3/4" mahogany sticks that have a 3/16" routed channel along the length of one side. I'm thinking of rigging one at the top and one at the bottom of the cabinet opening and using a 3/16" plywood rectangle for the face of the sliding door (which will slide in the channels) with a piece of 1"x2" mahogany (also salvaged from the pile) along one side of the length of the plywood door with a pull knob or handle of some sort about a third of the way down. As I realize my descriptions aren't exactly crystal clear, so I'll just post a picture of the finished product if it comes to fruition.

Nothing like a pile of stuff to save the day. I made horizontal sliding doors for my Trade Wind bathroom vanity. I didn't have room for hinged cabinet doors. They worked well enough.

My Overlander has very few hinged doors. Tambour was the factory choice back then. They are kinda nifty, and they are kinda a pain when they stick. Vertical ones work better than horizontal ones.

You have the situation well in hand.

David
