I built another trinket for the Airstream (!)

OK, it seems that around here one television project just leads to another one.

A week or so ago, I installed a new 24" television and DVD/BluRay player in the rear bedroom area (The Queen's Chambers) of our 23D (here 'tis: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f317...3d-162048.html ).

So, having that installation done, we were left with two remote controls to keep up with or drop on the floor. That would never do, so I built a nifty little holder for the remotes. It's constructed from baltic birch and laminated with the same Wilsonart 'Asian Sand' laminate that Airstream uses in the current International Serenity models. The insides of the pockets are lined with super-heavy felt, and the whole shebang is held to the wall with Velcro.

Things like this probably don't deserve to be posted, but it's kind of fun to do, and pretty useful, too. And, most importantly, The Queen is happy! Me too.

Nice job matching the laminate!

A Royal solution . . .



PS -- With the new TV and DVD/BlueRay player, how much total weight do you figure you have added to the coach? That Baltic birch is heavy stuff, but nice to work with.

Glad to see you are keeping your woodshed going. Did you get the water tank drain installed?

You may want to invest in a universal remote.

Nope, waiting for warmer weather.

Less than 13 pounds (including the TV mount)... Changing out the toilet to a SeaLand 510 (full rim flush) probably added more than that. Anyway, we travel so light that a few pounds here and there is of no consequence. Yes, baltic birch is great stuff to work with... strong and stable, and a fraction of the weight of MDF (yuk!).
