The facing for the kitchen door was now built and I was able to cut the door
which will be the work counter for the camp kitchen. It will have the edges
routed and attached to the cabinet facing with a piano hinge for extra strength.

Applying a coat of polyurethane to all inside shelves was next on the project list. It will help seal the wood and keep any stains from occurring. I cut pieces of indoor/outdoor carpet for the interior bottom of the unit to keep objects from sliding around. These will be removed before painting. Cutting a mortise on the door for the piano hinge will insure the door closes flat on the face of the kitchen.
Next step is to route all corner surfaces with a 1" flush trim
bit followed by a 1/2" round over bit. Doing this will keep the edges from getting
chipped off and give a modular look to the kitchen.
All routing has been completed and now it is time to fill in all nail gun marks and any mistakes I have made with a filler. Finish sanding will follow.
