Sanding the Birch

After work it was such a sunny day, which I should say we have not seen sun in many many days, I decided to continue with sanding the interior. I can say tonight I have almost completed sanding the beautiful birch wood.

 I used a fine grit sandpaper 180 and a hand sander with lots of elbow grease.

The next step will be to wash the birch with Murphy Oil Soap. I plan on using Amber shellac, which is originally how the wood would have looked when new.  

Also, I washed out 49 years of dirt from the cabinets. I'm not sure what I am going to do with the shelves, maybe a nice paint job or just contact/shelf liner. Nothing special about the shelves.

Notice I purchased a set of trailer jacks. No more free rides for Bill!

Supplies came today from Vintage Trailer Supply.

I love this company!
