I've been warned against it but I'm going to go ahead and build my cockpit
table out of plywood
and glass it like I used to glass surfboards, 8oz cloth, polyester laminating resin, lap the edges, a couple of sanding
coats and then some coats of good quality paint
What I've been told is the table won't last a year and will fall apart.
I plan on through bolting the piano hinge with some hardwood backing and same for the hinges for the leaves. May not be the prettiest but I think it will look fairly decent and serve the purpose well.
Am I missing something? I need to figure how to artfully attach fiddles after the table surfaces are glassed and finished.
