Very nice work! It looks like you retained the original stovetop...did you reuse the sink or replace it? Also looks like you may have put new floor under the cabinets? Do you plan to replace the cabinets on the opposite side? What type of wood did you use? Keep up the good work. Remember to measure twice and cut once.

Bob

The stove top is not the original, I replaced it during my first restore right after I got the A/S, the original was shot. The sink is the original and I was able to keep the original oven which looks like it was never used and after a good cleaning and burner inspection/ maintenance works fine although I don't expect to use it any more than the original owner did as you can see in the pictures I have installed a microwave and I am sure we will use that much more. I have installed new floor through the entire trailer, I will post a couple of pictures as soon as I can of the hall and bathroom floor I have installed.

Looks great. What type of wood did you end up using for this project?

Beautiful job!

What color stain did you use on the cabinets?

Post Still Hard at work...

I hope to post some pictures of the finished project soon, I have to have it done by December 4th so we can attend the rally at Fort Christmas here in Florida so the pressure is on. To answer some of your questions, I used oak wood for the cabinet and sanded ply for the large piece. The stain my wife picked out and it is Min wax Colonial Maple 223. It is a lite stain and I am pleased with the tone, it brightens up the dark original paneling.
Look for some pictures soon and I am anxious to hear what you all think.

One thing leads to another

Great work but I know how this progression works. You're doing such a good job that now all the other woodwork will look "dated". So then you do the Gauchos, the Wood paneling, the end caps, the bathroom, replace the light fixtures, on and on it goes...

Talking More Pics

Ok as promised here are some pictures of the finished kitchen counter, new floor, new paint, new curtains, and what ever else I fixed up and can't think of right now. I think it all came out pretty good and cant wait to use it this weekend at Fort Christmas. Then after the holidays on to the next project, the new dinette.

Very nice work! Is your furnace still located within the galley? Did you replace it with a new one? What stovetop did your use. We are planning a similar project.

Bob
