Dining Area Makeover

Posted by on January 24, 2011

After spending eleven days parked behind the shop at Classic Coach Works we left Lakeland. We have vacillated for months whether we wanted to do additional updates to “the Rev”. Robin has yearned for a dining area with table and chairs, along with a credenza to replace the booth set up. Although I’m never keen on sitting in a booth, especially in restuarants, I bristled at the thought of giving up storage space under the seats. In the end I relented and am happy for that. Larry, not me, proved to be a master craftsman. He handbuilt a cherry credenza, matching our existing wood perfectly. Greg, owner of  Classic was able to procure matching drawer pulls and handles from elsewhere. This was a daunting task given the fact that our rig is five years old. We purchased two new dinette chairs and Larry retooled the esixting table to give us as much table top as possible. However, the credenza proved to ber the coup de’ grace as it has enable us to store even more items than previously held by the drawers under the booth. You know what booths look like but I wanted to give you a shot after it was pulled out and intial progress made and then the finalized project. We found that Larry was originally a musician in several bands. Our conversations were interesting at the least, in finding how and why a man can go from musician in some rock bands to master cabinet maker. Regardless, it was our gain as you can see what he was able to pull off.

    That is very nice looking. Are the chairs somehow fastened to the floor? When traveling how do you make them not move. I agree with you I hate booths. I use them because I need to take my blood sugar and it is easier to hide in booths but I do prefer chairs at a table if I feel comfortable.
