Had a great one! Thanks
Cooked the Holiday turkey in a sous vide. LOL


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Cool. ...


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

Day after Thanksgiving.

A day for removing Thanksgiving decorations, and putting up the Christmas decorations.

All that while watching "A White Christmas".

You know - that tradition stuff.

Finally added a piece of 1/2" thick (sort of), plywood up against the back wall. It is glued and screwed in place.

Purpose of that piece is to have something substantial to screw into, as I want to add some shelves/drawers back there.

In addition to that piece, I also needed another wall to use for the other side of the shelving, and to separate the space back there to allow room for the refrigerator.

With that in mind, this piece is a piece of 3/4" plywood. Again, probably overkill, but I wanted something stable and flat there.

This piece is screwed into place with pocket holes and screws, along with Loctite construction adhesive to secure it.

The shelving side here is roughly 19" wide, so the shelves/drawers will be longer than they are wide.

The left side will be the refrigerator side, and I left that just a touch over 24" wide.

That will allow me to use a narrower than normal household refrigerator, if I choose to do so.

This leaves room for a normal rv fridge or for a 24" residential one that would not need to be vented, along with being somewhat larger than a normal rv fridge.

Finger, not to be installed back there. Lol.

Ah, my favorite Christmas movie. I'm changing all the music on my iPod to Christmas music, which I will play in my truck until sometime in January. But we're not pulling out the house decorations just yet -- need to clean out some donations items before we have room to decorate.

Meanwhile, Obi-Wander and our friends' FW just got winterized today. That's probably not much of an issue with your project, eh?

Not a problem as of now. No water installed yet...

Check out this piece of high quality plywood.....

It's an inner ply, and it isn't affecting the overall thickness of the plywood, even though it looks kind of goofy.

Here are a few pictures of a small router tabletop that I made for my small portable router.

I figured it will work well or those small jobs where I don't want to pull out the full size router.
