Great workmanship on the cabinets; ha I'm using oak for the outer rails on my cabinets; i was thinking of staining them dark in opposite to your darker inner pc. Turned out nice on yours. Nice to see a built example of what I'm doing right now 1/2 way there ...

Why not the side profile of the tear with the stick and sack hanging out the window and the hat hanging on a peg by the door?

Great logo.

What are your plans for application? Are you thinking a printed adhesive vinyl or?

Not sure just thinking out loud at this point.

A little progress to share. Tried my hand at welding Alum. NOT FUN! :x I've done a lot of brazing and soldering, this is a different animal all together :?

Then I got the Upper cabinet framework in,

Droped off the fabric for the cushions with my Mom, that puts the cabin about 90% and I know that last 10% will kill me. :lol:

Ceiling trim is in also. :thumbsup:

looks like you won the alum welding battle Tony, it looks sharp. Better be careful or you're gonna be camping in that beauty this summer :thumbsup:

That aluminum looks great, did you fab that from off the shelf angle material from one of the box stores? It sure adds a pro look to the stove install.

Thanks Shaun :)
Burke, yes, just stock alum angle from the blue box. I'll finnish it off with a brushed look to cover up all the tool marks and imprefections. :NC

Tony..... coming along great..... and the welding alum, easy, just takes a bunch more heat to get it started! Easier with TIG than MIG for me but I have partner's that will say the exact opposite.....Get the puddle lookin' like a mirror and then it's just stick it and go....
