Ron Paulk might be a carpenter/builder, I'd argue that in terms of storage he's also an artist. (See his Mobile Tool Trailer from Part 1 if you've any doubt.) And below is this artist's latest blank canvas:
That's a 1,000-cubic-foot box truck Paulk recently acquired, with the goal of transforming it into something above and beyond the 500-cubic-foot Tool Trailer; this new truck will not only transport tools and materials, but will also be kitted out to do proper work inside of.
You won't mistake this first video for a Michael Bay production—it's just vid-capture of a CAD screen with voiceover by Paulk—but it's interesting in that we get to see and hear about some of his design process (as seen in the photo up top). The Tool Trailer from Part 1 incorporated store-bought tool drawers, but here Paulk is designing a modular and adjustable system of storage that will replace expensive drawer glides with simple dadoes. We also get to see the evolution of his clever solution (which will later be modified) to keep the drawers locked into the frame.In this second video, we see the actual truck shortly after being acquired and cleaned up. Paulk explains the goals he's trying to achieve and walks us through the interior to explain how he means to execute it. If you've ever dreamed of doing something like this yourself, I'd say this video is incalculably valuable to let you know what you're in for.
