Sink or Swim

Having finished both the side bed bases, albeit still with no firm plan as to how we might span the gap in the middle to make a complete farting platform, it was time to move onto that other basic essential of any wannabe camper-waggon: the sink unit. We’d previously knocked together the framework for the sink unit, while building the bed bases. Now it was time to panel it out and attach the sink itself.

We’re using the same slatted approach to the top of the sink unit as we did for the bed base. Although, in this case, there isn’t going to be any space between the slats [for obvious water spillage-related reasons].
