Hey Kirk. I like the way your teardrop turned out. My hat is off to you. I also like the idea about the shelf brackets on the side. Might have to borrow that one.:thinking:
All the best,
Bob (& Reggie)

I spent my lunch break thinking the same thing. I may be off to Lowes this weekend to check out some of those brackets.

Zach- the wallpaper is magazine pics glued on with acrylic varnish. Soak the pics in water for about 3-4 minutes then drag across a towel to get rid of extra water. Paint on a coat of varnish and imbed the pic. Paint on a thin coat on top. When its dry I put a couple more coats on top. Thanks for reading.

Well we did our first camp out. I was just a few miles from town at a friends house who live next to the Sacramento River. We cooked in the DO's stuffed pork tenderloin with cornbread stuffing and dried apricots. We had rice, aspargrass and cherry cobbler. It was windy and very cold. Pics to follow.

The shelf brackets on the outside of the tear worked great I highly recommend it.
