Re: The Sloth

Mikey, Congratulations on getting the wood stove in your bus. I had one just like that one in my first bus. It will certainly heat up the place.

Your dog is beautiful. She reminds me of my first dog that was part Collie and part Coyote. She was the smartest dog I have ever had. Here is a pic. She lived to be 15 years old.

Re: The Sloth

Won't be long you'll be serving dinner there and then a sleeper for someone Bet you're beautiful dog is already eyeing that up as a place to curl down and get comfortable. Nice work.

Re: The Sloth

Nice! I'm looking forward to seeing how you upholster the seats and finish the table. This could be overkill, but you might want to screw a 2x2 board across the width of the underside of the seat bottoms to act as bracing to prevent bowing. It would also probably help to straighten the bow that you already have in that one seat bottom in the rear seat. And if you get a nice tight fit against the sides of the seat when the lid is closed, it would act as additional lateral bracing as well and keep everything lined up properly. Just chamfer/round off the ends a bit on the side that faces down so it will easily slide into place when you close the seat.
