    I can't saw straight either, but with a router and a straight-edge I can make perfectly straight, square cuts, and using templates made from 3.5mm ply using an angle grinder, I can cut fancy shapes too. ;)

    As promised some pics. We got as far as finishing the overhead locker and the under rock n roll bed kick panel.

    Will do the two cabinets behind rock n roll bed then in a couple of weeks then later on in the summer will the bigger part.

    Rainbow conversions in Wisbeach do a good selection of stuff like that. It's where we got the pop out handles for our drawers and cupboards.

    I think it depends on what else you have in the interior. Too many textures or colours can look a bit fussy. To be honest I'm not overly impressed with the quality of the push button locks from Rainbow Conversions. If I was looking for catches now I would probably look at boat chandlers as the quality might be better.
