Thanks Frochevy. They are hand made from Mexico. My wife found them off a lady in Mexico that makes them. Unfortunately they are designed to be mounted on top of the counter. I had to fabricate tabs and epoxy them to the underside and attach to the bottom of the countertop. The theme is “Octopus’s Garden” from the Beatles. My daughter is an artist and she did all the art work

Got the tambour door installed for the coffee maker. Also got the table finished with the the captain chairs bolted down. The chairs are right over the fuel tank. It’s a good thing I’m skinny. 6 out of the 8 bolts were strictly by feel. DAMN !!!

Bluto/Eleanor almost finished

One of the most unusual drawers I have ever built. Was able to complete my front door lock & keypad assembly. Even hung the privacy shade. Won’t be long now.

Got my storage area “ garage” going. Not much storage but I figured make every inch count. The insulation board is removable to access back of shower for any reason. Not sure I would ever need to though. The space between the shower and the rear of the bus is perfect for our rods & reels. The plan is to make a fold out table top hinged at the bottom that will serve two purposes. 1. Table 2. A chicken coop style ramp/ ladder to access my shelves up high. Sure wished I could reverse the handicap door opening but just too danged dangerous.

I'm too old to ever want to do acid again, but if I did, I would want to do it in your bus for sure.

Hahahaha. Go figure. I haven’t really thought about it but that is probably why I get off to all the color. Funny though, I spent most of my teenage years stoned and my wife has never even thought of doing any kinds off drugs. She is the one most responsible for all the color and the Beatles theme.
