Andre- I like the tried and true traditional way—varnish. I use Epifanse brand. Your beautiful table should give you plenty of practice so by the final coats you should be and expert. I would recommend the “roll and tip” method for the large flat sections. Apply with roller and quickly/lightly smooth with China bristle brush for the “tipping”. See directions attached. Good luck. Enjoy!

     Both of those tables are beautiful but they both look gigantic. Is there any room for humans in the cockpit  when they are fully deployed?

With the extension on the length is 40 inches which 4 people can eat on comfortably. Without the ext. it is 28 inches which is normal for a cockpit table. I think the angle of the pictures make them look longer than they are. Hopefully anyway!

I made a similar teak table and finished with Epifanes.

Here is another pic of the table in the normal closed config.  It allows great access to the storage and seating areas.  FYI, this table originally served as a cockpit table on my prior boat.  The Epifanes finish is very durable.

Glenn- if you don't already have one, make/buy a zipper cover to go over your wheel, binnacle, and new table to keep all “Bristol” when not using.
