HarrisKeymaster The second Build Your Own Teardrop Camper started this morning at CLC in Annapolis. Five Teardrops will be assembled August 7-19, 2017. It’s 11AM EST on Monday and already the camper shells are taking shape in the molds. Follow the action live on the ShopCam Yes, we reused the molds from the last class!

I would, too, and sand them as well, but it’s impossible to fit into the schedule.

We did the top and sides in one shot, then added the second top layer the next day.
