Flat Space

I needed some. So I built some.

One of the things that has impressed me since I started building Bernie in a camper colossus is how people can squeeze even the tiniest table into their vans. I wanted one too! And after the now standard hours spent researching all the usual places (YouTube/Instagram/vanlife websites) I came with a plan.

It would be completely recycled. And functional. And easy to store away. So I used some old off cuts, nails and glue I already had and for the legs, I took apart an old camping table from a friends old caravan.

It folds away perfectly into a slot between the bed and the van wall, behind the cushion.

And after one table, I was feeling confident and wanted two other little flat spaces on the back doors. ***cue more research***

And so with some more off cuts, carpet, nylon string and a couple of teeny purchases (hinges and hooks), I set to it again.

I’m so pleased with how they came out. They are also fold away and are pretty sturdy. We’re there issues? Well yes, I’d meant them to fold up rather than down, but some dodgy woodsmanship knocked that on the head. But they still work. So now I have more space to put stuff and I’m really pleased with how they look.

Just need lockdown to end so I can test them “in the field”. And with phase one of the Scottish Government’s Covid plan coming into effect on Thursday, that time is surely getting closer.

Exploring the hills and glens of Scotland on foot is my passion. A quick cycle, a days snowboarding or a multi-day hike, I'm happiest discovering something new about our gorgeous country and hopefully I can motivate others to do the same. I try my hand at most things, snowboarding, film making, sheep shearing, eating, sports, sports bars, other bars, barbells etc. Come along and see for yourself.
