Diy Galley project ##updated##

After reading boywonders laminate tutorial I have decided its time to start my first big project for my van.

Im going to design and build my door galley.

It has to be able to store my 2 burner stove and have pop up shelves and store my cooking utensils etc. And have cup holders for rear bench seat with a flip up table for inside use.

I got some nice laminate and dowel jig and a 5x5 5/8" sheet of baltic
birch plywood.
I'll be using t molding and laminate.
It will doweled and glued and maybe screwed together.
Im waiting on t molding and slot router bit to show up before I start.
Here the journey begins.

Diy Galley project

Thanks it's going to be slow as I am starting a new job contract this sun.
Here's the laminate and dowel jig I picked up today.
After laying it on the floor am happy that it will fit in ok.

I have two different box lay outs in mind.
The first one hinges open like the smb one to reveal the stove secured against the door .Storage in the door. And shelves inside the cabinet cutlery utensils etc.
Two flip down Surfaces one the stovetop and one for table top when door is closed .
The second design is like a book the cabinet is fastened to the door no hinges.
It opens like a book instead with stove mounted to the door for travel on the "right " page and the left side with a flip down stove table like a Murphy bed. Behind the table are shelves for every thing needed for cooking.
Also storage inside the door like the first design .
I'm leaning towards the 2 nd one so far because it won't bee hanging from hinges on the door.
Damn I just talked myself into the 2 nd one I think..

Re: Diy Galley project

Is that the laminate you have laid out? If so, that looks like a really interesting pattern. Do you have a brand or "color" name?

It is dowel drilling alignment jig for joining wood, its a lot stronger than gluing alone or screws.
Im planning on glued and doweled joints on the cabinet, maybe even screws too, well see.
