Chapter 2: The Body Frame

The K2 is adorned with a few decorative corrugated type trims that run around the outside of the frame.
Because I was unable to source any such lookalike wood, I shaped my own out of 2" x 4" (100mm x 50mm).
I was able to make the 'corrugated' frame members using just a standard circular saw, a planer, and sand paper.

The rest of the material required for the body frame was easy enough to obtain from building supply stores.

In all, the body frame consisted of 2"x4" (100mm x 50mm) wood for the framing members (the pieces with the corrugated bits), 11/16" (18mm) plywood for the floor and back wall, and some quarter-round for up the corners and around the top.
