Teardrop Trailer – Build Day 2

FRAMING THE WALLS

I spent most of day two framing the rest of my first wall. The tricky bits today were framing the door and the front curve.

FRAMING THE FRONT CURVE
Here is a close up of the front curve. ┬áThe framing is a bit messy but this gets covered up anyway. I’ll sand the outside edge of the curve with my power sander so everything will be nice and smooth before I wrap the roof skin over it.

First door framed. I might add a tiny upright to brace the bottom edge – it’s sure to get stepped on.

I still have to complete the big curve in the back. I think I’m going to cut the bits for it from something wider like a 2×6″ and use a jig saw. Hand cutting the tiny front bits wasn’t a lot of fun and the fit is just so-so.

I glued the bottom rail on wall number two. There is a bit of warping in the board which means loads of sanding later. Fixable, just time.

Before I finished for the day I pre-cut a few bits for the other wall. Above are my precuts labeled and ready to go for tomorrow.
