You may recall a previous Instructable of "Installing Square Cabinets In A Round Bus". I got a good deal on those cabinets at a Habitat for Humanity Restore in Gainesville, GA. I had planed on installing cabinets throughout the entire bus but I haven't run into any more deals like that. However, while volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Hobbs, NM an appreciative local resident donated a load of scrap moulding from a defunct woodshop.

After pondering over my new found windfall a light bulb lit up as to how I could use these small pieces of wood. All the cabinets are a basic 2" X 2" frame with 1/2" OSB for a base and the bus wall as (what else) the back wall.

Step 1: Supplies

  • Scrap wood (moulding worked best my project plus it was free.)
  • Wood glue
  • Fasteners (Brads will work. I used an air finishing nailer.)
  • Hinges and screws
  • Chain and hooks (If your doors will swing down)
  • Sandpaper
  • Stain or paint (or however you wish to finish them)
  • 1/8" laun plywood (for style 2)
  • 1/8" laun Plexiglas (for style 3)
  • Cabinet latches (I tried three different types. I liked the magnets best)

<p>That came out wonderful! Nice work. Good to see your bus coming along!</p>
