June 2014 Updates

My Epson R3000 printer was test fitted in the drawer under what will be my workstation in the vintage bus. It fits with almost no space to spare! I even have to find a 90° angle power cord to allow the drawer to close… I ordered one of those today, so I should...

One that lacquer is applied, the richness of the wood really comes out. Here you can see some of the walls after the final finish is applied. The areas that won’t have veneer applied are where the refrigerator and show are located. Check out the grain pattern...
