Campervan Conversion - Doors & Bulkhead - Mercedes Sprinter #ad

In this video we work on finishing off some of the trim reveal around the side door, and we make and install a bulkhead for the van (that's the panel that sits between the cabin and the back) with a cupboard door for access to the shelf above the cabin, and we clad the doors in plywood and make some new window boxes.

Some of the work had already been started - some of the walls already battened and insulated, flooring, water heater, electrics installed and some tongue and groove on the ceiling (although we'll be removing that and starting again as it was done to a poor standard).

I Made Some Large Gates For A Driveway

In this video I work on a commission to build some large garden gates for a driveway using pressure treated / tanalised timber from a local timber merchant, plus some untreated shiplap from a sawmill.  The gates span over 4m in width and are around 1.7m high.  I used half lap joinery at the corners of the frames, and floating tenons / dominos elsewhere.
