Camping is ment to be fun and you are in the right direction. As long as your music does not run the folks next door the wrong way. ;)
Nice new hobby. :thumbsup:

I go off somewhere by myself and practice or play inside the teardrop with the doors closed.
Just old Rock N Roll songs like "House of The Rising Sun" etc. :D Danny

Bruce Osborn built a standy type but you get an idea of how to do some cabinets, I beleave I saw it at IRG my photos were blurry. You will like the video.

add a room idea

bike trailers and push type all lite and might have parts useful in our trailers.

want to take along a spare room for guests? think about it.

If you want to build light bike trailer not sure if it peddles or motor. but def. different wish they talked less and showed more.

some times new idea for how things look or are made makes one wonder what new thing they can do with a TD.

I am going to build a Galley one day and this youtube will help me build the frames for the drawers and cabinets
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2eiT6dbR4k

Biscuit Jointer seems to be a tool Woodworkers use. It is a very very dangerous machine but does a really cool job.

I have been looking for other videos that will help me with cabinets

can any one offer some good ones.

In a teardrop the drawers would not be the depth of one in a house. or would it.

Ron, I worked several years in the face frame department at a California cabinet shop.
In my opinion a biscuit cutter is not the best method to build face frames.
You'd be better off with a self centering doweling jig and a bag of 3/8" x 2" spiral dowels.
The dowels penetrate each member 1" and all that gluing surface makes for a very strong joint.
Any member over 1 1/2" wide should get 2 dowels to prevent racking.
Personally I don't have one since I've owned an industrial pneumatic single spindle doweling machine for several decades.
I just step on the foot petal and the hold down foot comes down & it drills the hole.

You could make one if you have a radial arm saw.
Just put a drill chuck into the screw on the side of the motor.
Purchase a 25/64" brad point bit to go into the chuck.
Don't use a 3/8" bit or the glue could crack your wood, use the 25/64" bit.
Swing the motor so the drill bit is facing you, then build a fence to go into the fence slot.
Make a paddle for a hold down using a spring loaded screen door hinge.
Accurately mark off your center hole and the width of your rails on the fence.
Now you can drill holes by pulling the saw toward you.
I did that for several years and it worked great.

Your next best method would be a pocket jig and screws.
The ultimate would be a mortise & tendon joint but it's so labor intensive.
You'll be just fine with dowels or pocket screws.

There's no hard rule that you can't go face frameless.
I only make face frames for the cabin and go frameless in the galley, which affords more useable space.

The depth of your drawers are dependant on the available space in your galley.
Make a full sized layout to determine your drawer depths.
:D Danny

I sure can relate to that! I try to use as many things as I can to compensate, such as video's, pictures and asking allot of questions.

Since we did not build a teardrop, we did not use any videos for that. However, I regularly use videos to learn all sorts of stuff. Whenever I work on a car, I search youtube first if it is a repair I have not done before.

I also create/post my own videos on repair jobs and reviews so others can learn from my experience.
There are 10 types of people in this world, those that understand binary and those that don't.
