My first stab at a teardrop. I am going to use steam bent black walnut strips.

Nice start. Can you put this in a blog. I built a 6’x10’ tear drop a couple of years ago. I have really enjoyed it.
There are probably more people on this site theat would be interested and a blog would probably get to them.
I think you will really enjoy it when you are finished.

I am new to the sight as of today, I am still learning how to navigate.

This is my first attemp at a teardrop camper, I have no plans, learning as I go. I have been a woodworker for, well a long time I guess. since I was 7 years old. My friend inspired me about 4 weeks ago on the teardrop concept. I took about a week to think aboutit and started to look online and build one. There is no set plans, I see a cocept online or in a magazine and go off to my shop, draw it off of memory and put it on wood. So far far everything has worked out great. knock on wood.

This is awesome. I would love to be able to follow what you are doing. I’m drawing up plans for one right now. I want to build it over this winter. I bought a cheap set of plans on line to use as a starting point. I have links to several sites on line that have good pictures and info. Yours is off to a great start. Did you purchase the trailer? Can’t wait to see more pictures :)

First of all, welcome to Lumberjocks Joe. We are glad to have you on board. You have a great start to a really cool looking camper. Be sure to take a lot of progress pictures and as you get more familiar with the site you might entertain doing a blog of your build.

Wow,

This is already an amazing follwing on my post. Thanks to all of you.

I have pictures from the very start of my project. I will post more. Most of the pics I thought at the time would be for me to referance back to for another Teardrop build. If you guys are interested, I will post pics from the begining of my vision.

My trailer frame was a tent trailer frame that I cut amd modifide to my needs. Truthfuly, I would have probably been better off to build from scratch. But, trying to use free resources.

Welcome to Lumberjocks!
Glad I found your post. I have been looking at these teardrop trailers in a Google search a while ago. They seem to draw my attention for many reasons. Now I have another one to follow! Looks great so far! I agree with all that say a blog would be good! I think we would all love as many pictures as possible. This is very interesting!
