slowly moving along, I decided to put a rev-a-shelf rollout unit that is 5" wide in the 8" cabinet between the booth and the sofa. Originally i had bought chrome wire sheet dividers but I didn't like the idea and so I surprised with this. I was going to make one but for 91.00 shipped this was the better choice even though I had to shorten it 1".  Hope to be all finished by end of the month and use my last 8 days of vacation someplace in this. also i laminated the top of the little cabinet with what the dinette top will have and, added a receptacle with USB ports

bought the drawers for the sofa and booth benches from a drawer company in Az. Nice 5/8" baltic birch dovetailed, for their price it's not worth making my own. You can purchase them assembled or unassembled, finished or unfinished, I buy them unassembled to save on shipping. Kind of funny that the new tariff tax on imported goods has increased their price a bit since last time I ordered, the plywood comes from Russia and another place over that way that I cannot remember.

love this!  I've been thinking of rebuilding my dinette into an L shape and the springy support was a concern.  Did you make your own slats or buy them from somewhere like Ikea?  If you bought them, did you have to recut them to fit?

Yes, Ikea, had to trim about 2" off one end. There are different lengths for single, queen and king I think. Much easier than the zig zag furniture springs.

finally finished up the dinette, sofa and small cabinet. Ready to start wallpapering tomorrow. Going to wait on the upper cabinets this year and start up again in the spring unless I find some indoor storage with heat. I found the recessed pulls that I like, chrome usually isn't my thing but, I liked these.

Nice job!  Where did you get your cushions too?  Are the drawers on soft close slides or do you have something else to keep them from opening when you are moving?

The cushions were made by a shop in Seneca, IL. she has a shop out in back of her house, and does top notch work. No soft close, they are self closing KV full extensions

finished the floor last night and semi installed the door molding that ai made in one piece this time, last time I mitered it and screwing it tight popped the miters even though they were glued and clamped.

this is my 8 year old grandson Brayden that likes to help me no matter what I do, he's actually very intelligent and catches on pretty quickly. He has taught me much patience , he's a precious boy to me and, he gets a little spoiling from papa and grandma too.

As I wish my grandson lived closer! I could certainly use an extra set of hands working on my floors lol

I'm pretty much finished with the inside until I make the upper cabinets and carpet the cockpit, later this fall. Maybe look for some nice used seats over in Elkhart on the way through.
