I used the jig twice.

Once to mark and cut the aluminum skins, and then again to cut the wood.

I simply marked on the floor where the outlets would be and then aligned the jig with the marks for each cut.

Wood paneling ideas

The jig is a half inch high here because of the thickness of the floor, but this will give you an idea.

Done!

Just spend a good chunk of the holiday weekend completing my paneling job. Both end caps, ceilings and all exposed walls are now birch.

You have created a very nice ambience in your trailer and the warmth of wood throughout will be inviting to those allowed to peek inside - Kudos on a job finally done.
