    You’re so clever using all those bits of different wood pieces and scraps to build out that hose fabulous pieces. The finished product is so cool looking, my favourite is definitely the piece with elastic on. Just subscribed as now can’t wait to see the finished van and journey along the way 🥰

    Oh my gosh. Your subtlety interspersed bits of humorous remarks were so wonderful. They really brightened my day. And they fit so perfectly with your delightful expressive facial expressions. You must be professionals.
    You are both a delight to my soul ❣️
    I'm subscribing. I'm in "sunny San Diego, California where it's only been hitting 27-30 degrees overnight with 60-50 highs. I can't imagine working bundled up in your obviously 🥶🥶🥶attire. Your husband's remark "oh that's heavy" on holding the banana macramé rack had me rolling on the floor with laughter.
    Such a delight to watch you both. Thank you for your superb presentation 🙏❄️☃️

    I love your creativity and that you're using stuff you already have. We hope to start building our shuttle bus in the next year. And I hope to build our cabinets ourselves. I noticed when you drill you had some "blow out" if you put "painters tape" above and below where you drill, that won't happen.

I'm sending this video to her. She is gonna be blown away… thank you guys so much.. it gives me hope that we can do this.. thank so much..

    For the banana hammock, I would think an anchor string diagonally from the corner back to the top of the rack on each side or from a hook screwed into the ceiling or something similar would work.
