Once all that's trimmed up, it should suck the bottom opening in and line it up with the intake chamber below the cabinet. I'll need to make up a 45 degree box at the end to channel the air down. I'll probably end up insulating it, too (just in case i end up using it for the outlet, rather than inlet). It all depends on how well the air flows.

The lower angle shot gives you a good idea of the chamber I'm building in.

now it's time to go get some beers in me!

Enjoy your beer. You deserve it!

I really like the way the curved corners look. Thanks for the detailed pictures. They will come in handy when I try to copy your cabinets.

Fridge Cabinet Update....

Well, for the extra space on the side of the fridge cabinet, I decided to make it into a magazine-style rack. I'll be doing the same thing next to the couch on the galley cabinet. I had some scraps of perf-ed aluminum left, So I thought I'd see how they looked detailing the cubby out. I like em! I'll have to put my noodle back on and come up with a cool way to finish it off.

Main galley Cabinet is ALMOST done!

I just finished laminating on the 1/8" plywood to all the frames, and painted the kick plate framework black. I don't want it showing through the aluminum. Speaking of the aluminum, I took a scrap and test bent the corner. Works great! If only the birch bent this good! ha! Maybe on Stinky (my next project Globe Trotter) I'll do curved corner furniture out of aluminum? That would be sweet!

Anyway, it's upside down, but you can see the magazine rack opening that will be next tot eh couch. No wasted space at all!

Back to work. I need to finish the part of teh kick panel duct that connects to
the couch. I'm REALLY hoping to shoot these with lacquer tomorrow and install them. I can't wait to see the fridge bolted in!

Love those curves!!!

I absolutely love it. I am in Decatur restoring a 64 GT. See my blog "64 GT Restoration". Anyhow, I will be coming to the Fall event with my GT, even though it will more than likely just have the floor in and possibly some wiring. Who knows where I will be by then.

If you have time, I would like to speak personally with you.

Keep it up. I hope to have my shell back on, at the latest, by next weekend.

Thanks, Andrew

Hey Andrew, If you're ever up in the Crabapple/Alpharetta area, give me a shout!

Pics from the weekend...

Here she is on the slab, with her sister ship "Stinky". There is SUPPOSED to be a barn over them, but that's another nightmare.

Anyway, on with the pics...

All the base cabinets are sanded, sealed and installed! The fridge is bolted in as well. I really like the aluminum front. I'm going to need to clean up the end caps a little. Especially the rear. It looks a little dingy in these 2 pics.

Underneath the fridge, we will have perf-ed aluminum door panels, and we are planning on having the side towards the door be our little wine rack!

a couple of views from the back. You can see the magazine rack at the foot of the bed. I need to pick a laminate cover this week.

Outstanding! Very nice work. Love the rounded corners - softens up the interior. Can't wait to see what fabric y'all are going to use.

That's going to be a tough one! I'm a little torn, and cushions can either make or break an interior. I might stick with solids, just to be safe... Something like this (yeah, I know it's similar to Winnicks 75th)....

I'm thinking a solid dark bottom, bright back, and pattern only on the throw pillow... dunno...

I'm going to look at laminates for the counter top today, too. So many decisions, and so little time to make em!

I love Winnick's 75th (and pretty much all of his other work), my interior will be strongly influenced by his designs as well.

Can't wait to see what it all looks like when it's put together!
