If I was a hater, I would post what my wife says every time I show her the various posts considered to be progress! She's not a wall paper fan!




I have a plan. Depending on how one looks at it, fortunately or unfortunately, when I gain new knowledge, the plan changes just a bit.

What good is a construction project without some changes?


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

I cut a piece of plywood to length today, and cut it just a hair long. So, I setup my straight edge to remove just a little more.

Here you can see how minimal the amount of plywood was, that I wanted to remove. It was only about 1/8", and I knew I had no chance of cutting that straight without a straight edge to guide the saw.

The pencil mark is where the edge of the saw would be, without taking any material off at all.

Finished my 3rd coat of Lacquer on the passenger side where the red arrows are.

Also, cut a piece of plywood and Lacquered it for the end of the counter top. (yellow arrow).

Also cut and Lacquered the counter end for the drivers side. Also, the yellow arrow. That plywood will also get some wallpaper.

I also applied more wallpaper at the end of the shelving, above the counter. (red arrow).

I'm not a fan of wallpaper, but that does look pretty nice.

Have you decided on lighting yet?

I have never been a big fan of wallpaper, myself. When I looked at this, it looked different to me. It had a "depth" to it that I usually don't see with most wallpaper.

I saw this online, and not in person, so it was a little bit of a gamble, but after it arrived, I was happy with it. I have no idea how long it will last, but, hey, I'll give it a try.

Worst case scenario, I'll have to take it down.

Planning on Led's since we like to boondock a lot. The wife wants a couple of sets of string lights, which I haven't looked up yet, but will in due time.

Need to update the spreadsheet again.

1 qt of Lacquer was an additional $15.88. An additional piece of 1/2" x 4 x 8 plywood, was another $49.85. The wallpaper amounted to $83.11, and came from Home Depot.

That's a total of $148.84, and we add that to our prior total of $10049.95. New grand total of $10,198.79.

I like to let this thread grow for a few months before I catch up on it, gives more of a sense of progress and accomplishment that way.

And seeing as I have an extremely important work project today, I of course just caught up on the last 50 pages lol.

Looks great (well, except for maybe the wallpaper, but to each his own?), keep on keeping on!

I have a boat in my garage that started as a weekend repair about 10 months ago. I might be finished in time for next summer, I do understand project creep and figuring out stuff as you go...

Glad you are still around, and sounds like you have your own project going on there. Hope it goes well for you.

If I only posted every week or 2, it would look like I was getting more work done, but I would not post nearly as much detail.

Depending on the day, it may take me anywhere from 1 to 3 hours of computer work until I go through my pictures, choose which ones I want to use, then edit them, and post replies and post new info.

Some days are less than an hour, if it's only a pic or two, and only a post or two.

When there are replies involved as well as new info, it just takes a while.

Thanks for following.

Well, today didn't work out like I though it was going to.

Remember the 2 pieces of plywood that I cut and Lacquered at the end of last week? The 2 with the yellow arrows? Pics below...

Yea, those 2. I was planning on screwing them in today and then adding some wallpaper to the one on the drivers side, to create a little "corner" effect with the stone.

When I picked them up, I discovered that I had not given them a final sanding right before the last coat of Lacquer, so they were not as smooth as I wanted them.

Soooooooooooo, I sanded both of those this evening, and gave them another coat of Lacquer, and will fasten them tomorrow, and add the wallpaper on the drivers side.

Oh, well. At this point, what's another day added to the build.
