Thanks for the compliments! I should have said I "can't" say I haven't lost my temper! At least I have no one to get mad at about mistakes but myself. Wood is good--you can always do it over if you mess up! (Unlike, say, aluminum!)

I'm glad I'm not the only one. My mantra is often "It'll be worth it when it's done. It'll be worth it when it's done..."

And today I'm off to pick up three more sheets of plywood for the curbside bulkheads. There is an end somewhere, maybe around that next bend.

Ugh! The bulkheads were bad for me....I'm glad they're over! I only have 1 more door to make, but I don't know how I'm going to do it. It's for the closet. I might just put an accordion door there, but I feel like I'm coping out if I do that! I'll have to stare at it for a while....

Where are you putting all of that stuff? Do you have a 34' Bambi?

I was thinking the same thing! That's a lot of cabinets!

Becky, why won't a normal door work? Can you post a picture for brainstorming? Your trailer is coming along way too nice for an accordion.

3 doors above gaucho (panels laying there too)
2 doors under gaucho (panels laying there too)
2 doors under dinette (panels laying there too)
1 door above sink - - not shown & FINISHED!!!
I'll have to go out there & take some pictures of my door problem. I've got a week before my winter work break is over (which is why I've been trying so hard to get this finished). I have to go back to work to take a rest!!!

I just went out to the Bambi II & stared at the opening for the closet door for a while. I need to put a bi-fold door in. I made the drawers next to the closet very close to the edge of the closet, which presents my problem. Click image for larger version

The rest of the doors will overlap outside of their frames. Sadly, I didn't plan for that here :-/ So, I guess I'll mount the door inside the frame & it'll just have to be different from the rest. I don't think many people will actually think that's a bad thing, it's just that I would rather it be the same!
So one question from my friends.....I'll be making the bi-fold in the same style as the other doors (I'm holding the door for above the sink in the picture, just for an example) Each style of the cabinet doors are 1 1/2" wide. For the center styles that will be joined with the piano hinge, would you make them 3/4" each, or 1 1/2" each? The total width of the opening is something like 27" (I forgot my notes in the trailer). What would you do?

And on a happy note....I'm going downtown (Chicago) tomorrow with my sister who is a sewing/quilting master to pick out my fabric!!!!!!

I would make all the stiles 1 1/2". Each door panel will look more balanced that way, especially when the door is open.
