Design & Build Pt. 4 – The Kitchenette


The kitchenette is a major structural element in the trailer. I built it out of three-quarter inch birch ply and poplar. It is cantilevered over the rear portion of the trailer a bit to allow for the bed to slide underneath it when extended.

Although I still have some finishing to do on it I decided to mount it so I could tarp up the trailer for the winter and make some space in the garage for the wagon. I will need to make the three drawers and the cabinet doors still, and of course shellac the whole thing. But it’s a milestone in the build because now I have the first support in place for the street side wall.
