Teardrop Trailer Tiny Home
You took exactly the same approach I have been musing about for my Forester. That extruded aluminum was something I wanted to try, as I see it often in restroom stall wall applications. It's not readily findable in a google search though. And, the aluminum will save weight as well. The process you describe to build up the angles is great! Most car roof racks are proprietary, and yeah, you can probably buy a factory rack to work, but where's the fun in that? Are you planning to rooftop camp with this? How's the wind noise?Thanks for providing the detail plans and very specific applications to your car! I have this saved and voted up in the metalworking contest! Take it easy,
Better. Faster. Stronger. Build Your Own Automotive ROOF RACK!

I really like the detail in the steps of your project! I've made tool rolls using the seam ripped pants legs off of old jeans. Your waxed canvas looks professional and durable.
I like your project. I agree with the comments about the grain orientation, but maybe if you used a hardwood like maple? And, another thing. I've played 42 with some serious rascals. I bet after a few hands, they would recognize the dominoes by the back grain design! The way you cut them though, I bet that would be harder to do.

This is really great information. I've been toying around with this idea for years, my only break in the process of using a straight razor, is what angle do you hold the blade to your skin? When I'm testing the sharpness of a pocket knife, I'm angled to the skins as if I am slicing the hairs off. I'm just a little leery of getting that close to my throat with a straight blade, slicing hairs...
