Where did I see someone's rounded cut-out openings on shelves?

Hi all,
I visit a few forums and can't remember where I saw pictures someone posted of their conversions. I've been looking for them and can't find them. I keep thinking it was here, but IIRC, this person doesn't have a skoolie.

But I'm posting anyway, in case it was here that I saw them OR someone here knows who it is and where I can see the pics again. I'll describe them as best as I can remember:

The person has shared pics of two vehicles: one is a stepvan/bread truck type of vehicle (unless it actually is a small bus and I'm remembering incorrectly) and the other is a pickup truck with camper shell.

Both vehicles have very pretty, pleasant interiors with wood on the walls.

The stepvan has a tiny wood stove mounted on a wall.

The camper shell has a shelf behind the head of the bed.

Most distinctive feature of both conversions is the wooden storage units which have openings cut-out for reaching into the shelves/cubbies. The openings have rounded corners and add a very nice design element. Both vehicles have this feature.

Any clues? TIA for any help!

Sounds like a common feature of sailboat construction designed to keep everything in place when healed (or rolled over). Hope your not planning that in the RV You could try google or Pinterest 'sailboat interiors' it's one of the things I am interested in for my build. In fact sailboat interior fit out has a lot we could learn from....

There is a lot to be learned (and stolen) from the blue water crowd.
