How to Install Boat Style Latches in an SUV Cabinetry Conversion

6. December 2019 10:41

By Brian Daigneault, Solid Wood Worx

I grew up in a cabinet shop and was a born to be woodworker. In the past few years when work slowed in the custom cabinet industry I converted a few friends Vans and SUV's so they had more storage for adventuring, work, or just the weekend beach getaway.

I design and build all kinds of custom woodwork and vehicles at my shop in Huntington Beach, California!In this how-to video I show you how to install these new boat style latches I've used in a few builds recently. I like them a lot more than the push-button knobs i used to use that were cheap and kept breaking, these seem much more heavy-duty.

I grew up in a cabinet shop and was a born to be woodworker. In the past few years when work slowed in the custom cabinet industry, I converted a few friends' Vans and SUV's so they had more storage for adventuring, work, or just the weekend beach getaway. 

Before I knew it I had my own business making people's ideas come to life. I design and build all kinds of custom woodwork and vehicles here at my shop. 

This was a really fun build that the customer brought to me. His idea for the build was different than most I've done, incorporating a floating shelf, but ended up working really well! The slide out table gives a massive amount of extra table space for cooking, camping, fixing something, etc. The flip up pieces behind the two front seats was a great idea that i had to think about a bit to execute to make it simple for anybody to use.
