You are way too hard on yourself. 90% of wood working is confidence.

Mahogany?

We are getting ready to make a decision on what wood to use for overhead cabinets and matching floor cabinets. Anyone have some pictures of cabinets they built using mahogany? If you used mahogany, did you stain or leave it natural? Thanks for your help!

We bought a '65 TradeWind. The owner removed all the cabinetry to strip it because a previous owner had painted everything blue. Now, one of the MAIN reasons I bought the trailer was because of the beautiful mahogany woodwork used in that year of manufacture. Unfortunately, I've stripped the paint off a couple of the cabinet doors only to find out that somebody replaced them with cheap plywood at some point.
Anyone know where to find cabinet parts for Airstreams? Or a good source for mahogany board?

In replacing yucky a couple looking interior walls, what would be appropriate thickness and strength. We planned on refinishing what we can save but just need to replace a few pieces here and there that are not in very good condition.

Thanks for any advice!
