Work Van/Shop Van
« on: July 21, 2013, 08:46 PM »
Finally getting some shelves and organization after about a year of getting the van. Free 3/4" birch ply from floor demo someone had down for a finish floor. Had plenty of 4'x4' pcs. plus I got paid to haul away. So I made use of them. Not done yet still have more ideas and some ply left. But have a good start. On small jobs I just do all my cutting in the van just plug in the ct22 and I am ready to go. As long as I can get up close it works well. Put scrap ply on the bench in front of Kapex and rip boards there just can't do full sheets of plywood. The best part is at end of day just unplug and drive away. On big jobs where I have room I still carry everything in and set up. I keep my two MFT's in there for big projects when I do builtins on site

Wow, look at all that room! Still working out of pick-up truck, but looking into vans. Is that a sprinter?

Yes Sprinter, have 14' in back and have the divider door cut off so I can slide 16' material between the seats. If you put a piece on angle and go all the way up in front of passenger seat you can get an 18' piece. Headroom is about 6' 4" I think. Miss driving my truck but I love the space in this. In the winter time I have a little propane heater I run in the back if I am cutting in there or need a place to warm up when working outside on cold days. Use a bucket for a seat then put my feet in front of heater to warm up. Much faster than trying to warm up truck motor to thaw feet out.
