The Console / Desk

The console area was a huge job because I wanted to maintain the attractive wood look and also cover up any seams.
I installed an extra one foot strip of Luan wood below the panel that was already installed.

Then I carried the theme to both sides of the Console area.

Now it was time to build the desk portion.

I decided to frame the desk using 2 x 2's and 3/8 ply to provide a sturdy enough workspace and reduce the overall weight.

I knew that the work surface was going to be a challenge because of the rounded nose shape of the trailer. I had to scribe the surface parts to make them fit properly.
