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.
