Airstream drawers

In the ARC workshop today – these drawers are from an Airstream Safari which was one of our first deluxe projects. This Airstream went off to live in Holland at the ‘Inn on the Lake’ and now we’re refurbishing the drawers and cabinet doors – here you can see Richard preparing to edge the drawer and door fronts and a detail of the drawer fronts with the protective film drawn back.

We have an online shop selling new Airstream parts and accessories and also have lots of vintage parts in stock – too many to list individually. So if you’re after something in particular, like these beautiful Safari teardrop lights, then get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.

In the workshop today: the Whale Tail is coming on!

Here are some photos of a vintage 1950’s Whale Tail Airstream that we are working on. Teak wood veneers and a mint green 50’s Smeg oven really work well in this retro feel Airstream.
