    What fastening method will you use? I'd hate to see some unsightly screws through the faces of those nicely finished panels.

    Yeah Jim, I'm hoping you're gonna do this properly. I'm thinking double blind shouldered juniper dowels, wedged with hooked lignum slivers, after a generous soaking in borate, Norwegian unction of Tung, and albatross wee.

    Gotta do things right.

    Right?

    Why do you guys always want to make things complicated?

    A few screws from the back will work just fine.

    Since when are scaffold nails "complicated"? I mean c'mon - you have to drill holes, probably using one of those fancy bits that's tapered & allows for countersinking, then you have to drive the screws in. Sheesh - all solved by wailing on it with a hammer. What could be simpler?













    Oh, BTW - my underbunk panels are held on exactly as you picture...

    Well, I thought it was almost springtime.



    I seem to have developed a leak in my tent.

    Strange weather everywhere Jim, here we're having unusually warmer weather than average. Go figure. Spose if we swapped it would be average.

    Working on trimming out the vee berth. It needs a lip to hold the bunk top and cushions in place and some bullnose wher it meets the other cabinetry to blend things in nicely.



    Bullnose in the making.



    Gluing up a few pieces.



    And checking fit.

    Install the bullnose, I cut the heads off of bronze ring nails to act as finish nails.



    Screw down the cushion retention trim. Tack the corners.



    And call it good.

    I've just thought of at least two other ways I could have done it Chris, but this is what I did. I wanted the face of the molding to match the angle of the panel as it approached the bulkhead. So I marked the width of the finished molding on a board. Like so.



    Set the joiner to the angle I wanted.



    Made a few passes until I reached the line.



    Set the angle again, this time to 45degrees.



    And made a couple passes, making the middle and bottom bevel roughly the same. I color the middle bevel with a pencil to make it easier to see here.

    Then it was just a matter of sanding of the bevels.





    And running it through the table saw.





    And Bob's yer uncle.

    What about soda blasting? Media blasting could take away some wood. Maybe walnut shells?

    Just a quick sand and then paint. No need to get too fancy.

    Oh, I am. Going around the frames tedious enough without having to deal with the laps too.
