Ok, it's been a year...time for an update.....
Over the winter I built new kitchen cabinets for the bus. It was something I always wanted to do and finally took the plunge. I only have basic wood working skills and not much in the area of cabinet making so this was a new challenge for me. It was also a challenge with the limited wood working tools I have. Not only did I want the cabinets to look nice, I wanted to keep costs down and also weight. Sometimes the bus hauls some pretty big loads so I try to save weight in other areas as much as possible. To do this I built them out of Pine (frames) and 1/4" Birch plywood (panels). I probably spent almost as much money on the sink and the Formica for the countertop as I did for the lumber.
My primary tool to building them was a free table saw that I re-powered with a circular saw: http://trx.punknet.org/gallery2/main...2_itemId=15072
The other tools I used was a cheap compound slide miter saw ($100), cheap drill press ($40), drill, belt sander, etc. I do not have a router (yet).
Here a couple pictures:
I also build under-floor storage which has been very useful:

Next? Good question. Either finishing the 'garage' so we can use it as a master bedroom when parked or giving the drivers area a makeover. I also need to finish my paint job on the outside. My current priority is to fix a dragging front brake problem since I can't drive it until that is fixed.
