Things are pretty well finished in the galley, now. The last major item is trim panels for the left and right sides. These will give a more finished look to the galley and hide some uglynesss.

The left side needs it even more:

The trim panels are probably the last remaining parts to get cut on the CNC. In honor of that, here's some video of the cutting and the fitting.

Meanwhile, back at the drawing board.
:scratchthinking: Something must have been made to the wrong drawing. :shock: Well, I'll just make the part to as-assembled dimensions.

Like this:

This time, it was good on the first try. :thumbsup:

I glued some spacer blocks to the inner outer wall to screw into.

One more to go. Something to do tomorrow.

It's too hot to work. It's too hot to camp. It's not too hot for :beer:

Same song, second verse.

This side was a little bit trickier, since an opening for the electrical box had to be the right size and in the right place. So I fudged a little bit and cut the hole, then moved the box to suit. Still a few loose ends to tie up, but the galley is basically finished. :sweaty: :P

Here's the Big Picture:

Still jealous of the CNC router set-up... no! I'm not going to think about building one! That would delay the Teardrop build.

Great work though... BTW, I think that you have a hitch-hiker hanging from your hatch.

Brad, nice video on the router table & parts, it's fun to watch. I've spent too many years doing this stuff by hand to do a CNC setup now, but the router is still one of the best, most versatile tools in the arsenal.

Really like how the panels finish out the walls & clean up the wiring. Looks like there's not a lot left to do now. What's next on the list?

Thanks, all, for the nice words. Those panels hide a lot of stuff that doesn't need to be exposed. I was beginning to wonder if I would ever get to this point. The galley is now officially as finished as any other part of a teardrop is finished. From here, it's maintenance and repair.

What's next? I have a project in the cabin for storage in the bed headboard that's almost done. Also air conditioning. I'm also mulling a taller tongue box for extra storage, and/or covering the box with aluminum. General doing-over.

New tires are on the agenda. I lost a lot of wear from underinflation while trying to soften the ride. I've got about 10,000 miles on it already.

Everyone says they are never done.

But is does keep the beer cold! :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

It's a wooden cow bell. It makes a pleasing "clonk." I found it in an anitque place. They had a big box full of them. There's probably some guy in India cranking them out to meet the world demand for wooden cowbells. :NC It's gonna be my wind chime. :D

More cowbell!
