One of the numerous things my boat builder did I didn't like was to put my circuit breaker panel on one of the doors going down the steps so I either switched everything off going down) or on (going up). I moved the panel some years ago around to the side of the cupboard and left my self with a hole in the door which I tided up with a bit of frame and a piece of ply. Today the time came to improve that which I had done and make a small cupboard in the door to keep maps in.
I went off to Wickes in Rugby and bought some 6x1 par, a length of 1/2” par and the necessary screws. I took the boat down to Newbold and set to making the cupboard. I suppose it took about an hour or so.
I re-hung the door with longer screws in the hinges to take the extra weight and now I have the planned cupboard. It will have a door but I need to think about it, I have a piece of wood to use. For the time being the cupboard is fine. I shall fix a small rail across the opening to stop the maps falling out.
And behind the door.
