Started building the frame work for the front of the cabinet and fitting the cabinet doors and drawer.
The ice box is mounted in place.

This is just a cooler that you can put ice in the top but hopefully it will work OK for us for 2 or 3 days at a time.

Posted Image


The front for the cabinet is all built and the 110 volt outlet is installed.
If you look in the opening just under the counter, you can see a copper tube fastened at an angle along the back wall.
This is the drain for the ice box.

These are the parts that I made up for a tip-out drawer that will go under the sink counter.

Posted Image


The tip-out drawer is fit into the cabinet.

Posted Image


Here is how it opens.
This will be a handy place to keep the tooth paste and tooth brushes.

Posted Image


All the screw holes and joints have been filled with wood putty and sanded down smooth.
The cabinet frame is masked off and primed.

The finished painting on the front of the cabinet.

Posted Image


I finished building in the shelves.

Posted Image


The drawer and cabinet doors are painted the same color as the front of the cabinet.

Posted Image


Here is the cabinet all re-assembled.

Posted Image


And how it looks with the counter raised up over the sink.
The tall narrow opening on the right side of the cabinet is for storing a couple of "TV Tables".

Looking good as always. Neat tilt out drawer. In these rolling motels, gotta use every inch of space. Thanks for the update.
