I used 80 grit paper on a pneumatic dual action sander for the final fitment.

I got the curve right first and then cut the "hall side straight.
Gorgeous. Hope mine comes out half that good, and soon.

Nice pics HiJoeSilver, always appreciate detailed info. I'll be checking back in with some pics when I finally get around to installing mine. Probably won't be for a few weeks though.

J Morgan, that looks really nice. Question what are the fasteners that appear about every foot, they look like big brown dots, easy to see on the vertical board in the first picture. They may solve a dilemma I'm having. Also on the third photo, where is that, is that a closet in the back curb side corner. It's hard to tell from the perspective. Looks like 2 doors but a fridge may be blocking one?

Building and attaching partitions to skin

The bath entry is comprised of two doors that meet in the middle, the fasteners are "RV style" square drive screws. I bought them off the shelf at Lowe's.

J Morgan Thanks for responding.
From the description I'm thinking they're brown pan head wood screws with square drive , like Kreg pocket hole screws but brown. I was thinking they might have been hex drive furniture bolts that go into barrel nuts. Been trying to figure a good way to attach the box frame closet that would keep it removable and reattach able without wearing the screw holes out.

I have made changes here and there, disassembled and reassembled, etc, the screws are pretty robust and wear well.

At my Lowe's they carry dark brown and black.

I have used mostly black, but a few brown when the black screws were out of stock.

If I wanted to use machine screws, I would consider using "rivet nuts".

I use these on occasion.
