Well, really, I have no idea.

Chicken & Egg.
Yeah. All I can say is that if there's a local place that does hardwood/cabinet grade plywood, that's where I'd head to look for some nice 1/8" ply. I'd send you some, but I get the feeling that shipping plywood is not going to be economical

I see a lot of stuff packed in the thin (1/16 or 1/8") closed cell white foam, especially appliance parts. Maybe some of that would give you an idea of the look if you thought you wanted to try it. And These guys have 1/8" foam pretty cheap.

Building an Adventure Van

I've been googling trying to find any source but no luck. I need to make a cabinet maker friend to find his supplier.

Have you try "loan" wood, it like ply wood but with a lot of flex in it and it a 1/4" thick. In montreal it 12$ a 4'x8'. Easy to work and good in humidity.

Lauan plywood (sometimes also known as Luan)

Well, it all depends if you wear the skirt or the pants in the household

Try "bending ply", "wiggle wood", "wacky wood".

Columbia Forest Products and some other companies make it. I've used it as a substrate for veneered curved aprons for furniture. The stuff can be rolled up and shipped in a square box. It bends in only one direction. You can choose it to bend either the long way or the other way.

Aircraft spruce website. 1/8 inch multiply shipped to your door ups. I think they have 2x4 and 4x4 sheets. A little pricy but a great material to work with.

I had moment to look up a link for the plywood. It is: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...nnishbirch.php

$64 for a 4 x4 sheet which while expensive it is very nice stuff to work with.

Maybe this helps? It looks like longboarders are also using 1/8" baltic birch ply. You've probably already found that though. . .

Plywood

Darn strange Ed, I found some 1/8 at the Broomfield Lowes. I cut them to fill the whole door as I think it looks cleaner, then used those badass rivnuts to hold it in place. Worked out well methinks. I wonder if I'll be doing it all again in a years time!

Paul: where'd you order the sink/stove combo from? Online or did you find it local?



p.s. I can't sheet the rear doors.. I have windows waiting in the garage for me to cut big holes in them...
