Here's our redo of the bathroom vanity in our '71 Tradewind. The flamingo on the curved door is cut into veneer which is glued onto lexan. When the light inside the cabinet is on, the flamingo lights up.

First of all, PICS please! I want to see the awesome flamingo.

Second, how does that door open? Looks like knobs on each side, but I don't see how it would open OR slide?

Nice job though. Very professional detailing.

We're still working on getting the flamingo lighting evened up. We're using a scrap of LED strip light and it tends to over light some areas and under light others. I'll put more pics on the blog (below my sig) when we get the lighting ready to show off.

The door lifts up and then out, using the same track that the sliding doors do. I couldn't curve the track, so I used short sections at crucial places to position the door where I wanted it. The top track is double deep, so there's space to push the door up enough to clear the bottom track. All that's behind it is plumbing and the light. The switch for the light is in the compartment with the TP roll, so there's no reason to open it unless the plumbing has issues.

interior of my 66 globetrotter

here are some shots of the work i have finished so far.for better privacy,i installed double doors leading into the bathroom.materials used were birch and then stained using 3 coats of golden oak and finished off with 5 coats of polyurethane clear(sanding with 320 grit between each coat).i am in the middle of changing the front sofa into a diner style seating area which was very simple.i was able to utilize all of the wood from the guacho and then sent the cushions off to be split in half and re upholstered.table configuration was tricky ,but i got it figured out.the table will still be able to be stored in original location ,and unlike the diner twins that come factory,my unit makes into a full size bed.pictures to follow upon completion.......jimmy

Beautiful!

Sanding between coats like that is a lot of work, but sure gives good results.

it is alot of work ,but the only way to get that deep gloss.i own a collision shop so i guess i kindaused some of the auto refinishing technic when finishing the wood.one thing i did was to spray the last 2 coats to get that nice even flow.the only problem with that is that one has the tendency to over apply and not allow the clear to flow on its own.then its a real pain to sand out runs.im still new to all this when it comes to woodwork and it has been so much fun learning.thank ya'll for the complements

that door looks great. My 66 has the large Ash veneered double door to the bathroom that is a great piece too. I have to keep it oiled as the veneer is so old and gets dry quickly. Love that WOOD
