After the efforts shown in the last vlog, I was not happy about the panel gaps in my new campervan floor – so I bought a load more plywood and re-cut them, using the “almost right” ones as a starting point. In this video, I describe this process in probably excruciating detail.
Essentially I just traced around the “almost right” panels but then went back over the areas where it wasn’t quite right and with a bit of freehand sketching (not the best way, admittedly), re-drew some of the corners. I also re-measured the lengths and re-marked them on the new sheets.
Frustratingly, the new ones still weren’t perfect but I did at least remember to use the factory-cut edges as the main straights, leaving the curved cut edges (such as around the wheelarch) as the parts I cut with the jigsaw.
By and large, this floor will suffice and seems to be pretty much flat so I’m going ahead with it.
