Bedroom Overheads started.

Started the overhead storage for the bedrooms this weekend. I ran out of time and wasn't able to install them yet but hope to finish it up during the week.

Using a dado table saw setup i was able to cut 1/4 slots that will hold the sliding doors. Simply make the top deeper then the bottom and you're good to go. 

I started with one template that Nikki created. Then i simple used a router to make duplicates 

Adding the supports. The 1/2 inch notches are there to help the wood sheet hold its curve after its applied 

Instead of build two long units, I built 4 sections to make it easier to apply the wood  (its a pain to bend wood in large sections). When they are complete I will attach them together to make two full units. 


  1. First off you did an excellent job on your cabinets! How are they holding up? Also, what did you use for veneer on the curved pieces? Was it easy to find or where did you have to order it from? Thanks and congrats on the nice trailer!

  2. Sorry for the delayed response. I just had a baby little girl come into my life last month so I was a little busy. As for your question, Nothing has been veneered yet. I'm waiting on everything to be complete before I finish covering the wood. As for the curved pieces, I was able to purchase sheets of plywood described as “Bendyply” I picked it up at woodworkers source. Unfortunately wood workers source didn’t even know what it was or where it came from. Luckily they had just enough for me to finish the job. I have looked online and found place that do supply it. This link shows a picture of the bendyply http://www.saudigroup.net.sa/fabricated.htm and if you google bendyply and select “images” you'll see a lot of examples. It really made the job easy. Hope this helps!
