2250 entertainment center removal....

Was:



Now:



We'd have rather had the overhead bunk, but this unit was everything we wanted except for the entertainment center in the overhead.

This last weekend, I completed the removal of the entertainment center, and will be building a cabinet from the bits & will install it on the right (passenger) wall. The TV will still be fully functional, but we'll also have a twin mattress or maybe a split full for a couple. As it was, the bunks were good for 5' foot length, great for kids but unusable for adults.

I'll post an updates to this topic as I progress through the project.

While working on this project:

I always like to say a job is not complete unless a little blood has been drawn. The new motorhome is no exception to the rule.

Tablesaw 1, Finger, 0.

Like my Dad before me, the tablesaw, of which I hold the utmost in respect, has claimed part of me. I've become so consumed with my work that it has consumed part of me.

I vow to never let it get more of me. It was a silly little mistake, one that should have never happened.

But it did.

Fortunately, the loss is minor, the edge of the left middle finger, a divot to the bone next to the fingernail. With the help of my lovely wife & lovely daughter we cleaned it, disinfected and bandaged, then after 10 minutes of rest, I went back to the tablesaw and finished the cut plus a few more.

Ah, the memories we make...

The project is progressing; I'll get some pics posted soon!

Dude. Table saw accident. I held my breath as I read. Glad it wasn't worse.

Yea, I got off lucky. Dang lucky. That particular tablesaw has given me nearly 30 years service, but I expected to get at least 50. I'd be 79 then...

Here's some updates:

All trim has been fixed in areas other than where the new cabinet goes:



Wiring rework - note there's now a light overhead... Don't ask how much trouble it was to find & fish that wire:



The corner where the new cabinet goes that will provide storage and will be the mount for the TV. Note how close it is to the DVD/radio/amp:



The other corner is finished - I turned the overhead lamp off so it is now visible rather than being a white blob:



More as I progress!
