Resin dinette table

A while back someone was wondering about making an epoxy resin top table for a dinette. That gave me an idea, so I came up with this contribution. Tell me what you think. It's for the aft compartment of our 44 foot Constant Camber trimaran nearing completion in Texas City.

Very cool. Which brand of epoxy did you use?

If you get bored and want to make another one you can send it to me.
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.

Re: Resin dinette table

Nice work on the table. Looks like a fun spot for dinner, drinks and whatever follows.

I've been thinking of covering the countertops in my boat with some colorful old charts that I have and would appreciate any suggestions on materials/techniques to use. I imagine a process like:

-clean and prep the countertop that is in place (formica in my case).
-glue down the chart(s) with ?? (contact cement?)
-do a surface coating with something like epoxy or polyurethane? over the chart to seal it and create a hard/smooth surface that will be serviceable/cleanable as a counter top.

What materials and approach would you use?

Thanks, and nice work on your creative table.
