cockpit table
« on: March 14, 2019, 06:51:48 PM »

I am having a cockpit table made and the man making the table is going to send pictures of the process so I thought it would be nice to watch the process. I will post them as I get them.

     Wow, that is a really gorgeous piece of wood. On a project like this I've found that sometimes the hardest part of the project is cutting and arranging the wood to get the best presentation of that beautiful grain.

A beauty! Interested in hearing more about its design: What will be the size of the completed table? Will it hinge up from the binnicle, have a vertical or angled support arm/leg, folding leaves?

The table has sat a week normal to make sure no bends or bows, notice the end grain has been capped on the main table. Tomorrow will cut to size and start mortising the hinges. Then fit the extension.

Nice job. I made mine this winter but with iroko wood. My problem is that I donít know what to use for finition. I see that you will use epoxy. Is it easy to use. My old one had cetol marine but I need to apply every year. Excuse my fault Iím learning English.

Your Table is beautiful, very nice work. I cannot answer your question but I will inquire when he sends me the next batch of photos. I would not use cetol though on your table. I think it needs a nicer finish. I had the option of doing the finish myself but opted not to. I realized from refinishing some of my interior woodwork just how difficult a table with folding leaves would be to do. Each piece of the table basically has 6 sides to seal/finish and I did not have confidence that I could do it correctly. It looks like you clearly have more skill than I so please post more pictures of your work.

     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?

if there is a specialist in finition I will appreciate the information. For now my table is sand with 120 grit and I wait because I don't know what I will use for finition. the iroko wood is similar of teak and contains natural oil. Any suggestions. Thank you.
