DON'T! You have no idea what you're about to start! Stay away from the buffer! Do not approach the polish jar! There's still time to bail on the polishing! Get a beer! Watch a movie, take a deep breath! Have someone call polishers anonymus. Turn away and forget about polishing........

This week was busy at work, could only do sporadic tasks on the Airstream. However, i did get the main galley countertop cut and installed. I also roughed in the face frame for the galley cabinet, and secured everyting to the wall and ribs. Pretty sturdy, with what I consider just the right amount of flex. At least that's what i am thinking.
One major setback was when i drilled right through a 120V wire, causing te inside of the wall to light up and loose my drill bit to the forces of electricity gone wild. So, off came everything, including the wall section, repaired the wiring, and put everything back. Jeez, what a racket this was. Fire and smoke, as if the whole thing was going to burn down. It still stinks in there.
Next thing is go figure out why the 15A breaker did not trip...weird. However, neither did the 30A where the trailer is plugged in to.
The wall faces are cut, trimmed and sanded, the bed is also ready to be secured.
I finised building the hanging closet ( all but the doors) and oiled everything tonight. Man, the natural oil brings out all the tiger stripes and flame pattern in the maple I am using and looks fantastic. I'll snap some pictures and post them later. So far I am very pleased.
Too bad everything will have to come out for the finisheing step. It looks so cozy right about now.....

Latest pictures

Here are the latest pictures from today. I took out most of the interior for finishing.
I had 8 pictures, but only 3 would post. So much for software updates. Seems like the interface gets worse, the more it gets updated.

1/8 plywood

Hi, If you are rebuilding with new plywood, what is your sourse? Thanks for the input on my thread. I have had some problems loading picture on the sight also. What I've found is that when I go to upload I will get a message that the system is having problems. Then I go through the process again and it seems to work. I think they are still working out the bugs.

Uwe,
Are the countertops real butcher block? Did you make them yourself? How big is your work area? Did I see Norm Abram in one of those pictures? Great job!

I am fortunate in that the city I work in has tons of small business. There are 3 well sorted hardwood sources within 5-10 minutes from the shop. My favorite woul dhave to be Austin Hardwoods, in Santa Ana. That is where I bought the 1/4in and 1/8in maple plywood and also the 1/2in Luan for the bed platform.
Another one is Reel Lumber, in Anaheim, CA. They have birch ply in a very fine quality. I will need some of that to make the interior partitions and drawers for the cabinetry.
The issue with the photo upload is annoying at best, but I am sure that one day soon it will be sorted out. My problem is just the time wasted if it does not work. Forum members always ask for pictures, and I gladly take them and post them.
