My Mahogany/Alder bedroom doors made it to the shirt shop yesterday, as I was headed out. Didn't have room in the truck and I wasn't headed bus, so I stored them safely....
Turned out awesome! I'll try to run back down there and grab some pics.

Here's a couple of small doors the door-maker brought in for us to engrave last week.

I've got a question...
I'm going to Tec screw 1" angle iron to bus side walls and create a flange for my right angled interior walls to make my pockets... Then I'm going to cover it all with 6" t&g cedar boards.

Should I cover those walls (to the flanges) with OSB first, then nail/liquid nails the cedar to the OSB?
Or cover the walls with cedar boards and omit the OSB?

Example, my front & rear angle iron framing will create a 2" to 2 1/2" pocket with skinned wall material on both sides of door
Kinda hard to put into text...

Any ideas?

I'll try to create a mock up later

IMO the OSB will make it easier to fasten the t&g to the wall. When I was younger my parents built a house with knotty pine t&g. It would have been so nice to have the backing of OSB when putting on the t&g.

I think I'm going the OSB route...
Otherwise, I'd want a vertical angle iron rib in the middle.

Not really sure yet, the wall only extends out 26" on each side of doorway.

Tek screw OSB to angle iron, then air nail cedar to OSB

Personally...I would avoid using any OSB in a bus. The glue used will not stand up to moisture well and buses sweat...a lot. That said...several good coats of old fashioned shellac will help a lot.

How about using marine grade plywood?

Marine ply is a bit pricey going in but absolutely the very best choice for use in an RV or bus. That is what I am using in mine. Thank goodness it a Shorty!
