Do not use 1/8" lauan for the ceiling. What a catastrophe.

Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

This all looks great!

Can you explain why 1/8" luan was a disaster? I'm planning on kerfing 1/4" plywood and there are only a few skoolies I've seen with contoured plywood ceilings. I was basing my design off Jatzy's. What went wrong? It looks great, besides the exposed screws, but those can be remedied. Are you going to leave the wood? Stain it? Paint it?

The 1/8 luan was good for the actual curve, because it Is held to stress capacity. It becomes very rigid when bent. But where the rest of the roof is a very soft curve the 1/8 became very flimsy and started to sag like a blanket. I had screws every 8 inches and it was drooping in between. And I couldn't get the 1/4 luan to bend the corner curve. So I used the 1/8 on the corner and the 1/4 down the middle. This is shown on my youtube videos. Number 6 I think. 5 and 6 maybe.
