Thirty-Three...



(above) Got out early today...Picked up the countertop material...



(above) Copper...



(above) The pattern for the counterop was placed on 1/2" plywood and traced out...Next pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) was laid onto the dust free plywood and the PSA that was outside the tracing lines was cut away with a knife (so the cut-off copper could be used elsewhere later)... After that, the copper sheeting was wiped with denatured alcohol and laid onto the PSA...



(above) The ply/PSA/copper panel was then flipped plywood side up and the template was traced to the plywood...Next the rail guided saw was used to cut the countertop panel...Cutting the copper was easy...Smooth even saw movement was the key...



(above) I was amazed that the copper cut line came off like this...Credit a new saw blade... 



(above) Looks rich...



(above) I checked the fit and was stoked that it was exact...



(above) Time for the countertop edging...



(above) I still had some teak laying around...I cut it like this...



(above) Then like this...



(above) And when dry fit together it looks like this...



(above) Then when glued with epoxy at the joints, looks like this...



(above) With 90% of the countertop done, I put together the wall / countertop backsplash...The masking tape is there to dry-splice the veneers together until they are bonded to the underlying plywood...Again, I used PSA sheeting...



(above) Test fit...The grain on the wall picks up on the vehicle's exterior graphics... Coincidence...???...I think not...



(above) And with a copper scrap to give a sense of how it will finish out...



(above) Next I went back to the bed pull-out area...Plywood fillers are screwed and glued to the steel frame...I'll cover that with zebrawood or afromosia veneer...Not sure which yet...



(above) Still thinking this thing through...



(above) Custom plywood lamination with a piano hinge built into it...


More later...
