Teak Folding Cockpit Table

Just finished building this Teak Folding Cockpit Table which seats 5 people. Cost me about $500 in materials. $350 was teak.

Very pro looking job. Nice hatch doors too. The heavy duty hardware is clearly the way to go. If you make a canvas cover make sure it's loose or the condensation will really hurt the finish. Cockpit furniture is worth all the extra effort.

Wow. Nice job.
I think I built my whole boat for less than $500!
(of course, it's not much longer than your table -- and not made of teak)

Either the cockpit shower install or the solar panels. Probably the shower.

Nice project, well executed. Question: Did you consider having fiddles? My cockpit table has them and they do hold stuff on it such as drinks if we're not too heeled and it's reasonably calm.

But the fiddles are a lot more work I suppose.

Thought about Fiddles, but didn't think they'd be worth the extra work to make them nicely.

Instead of fiddles you might just get some of that non slip shelf liner. I've got precut place mats we use on our cockpit table since we don't have fiddles. If the table is smooth and things slide I'm not so sure the fiddle will work as well on a table that wide. I don't see sitting in the cockpit when it's blowing and bouncing unless you have an enclosure.

Dear Trim,

It looks great....Now if you would like to visit Venezuela and help me with my new "mahogany table"...Then i would be very pleased to meet you. (Excellent whiskey's and beers on me).

Regards

Alan

PS is this your design or did you follow a template?

It was my design...pretty simple really. I already had the teak cup holder from the original small store bought table and simply attached to the bottom of it using the piano hinge.

table

Nice table, Trim, and nice blog too.
I remember being impressed with your deck project when I first saw it several years ago.
Now I seem to have to wade through a bunch of pirates to get to it, though.
A cockpit table is on our list, too, but the price Edson gets for the hardware alone is slowing me down.
I like your design... simple and functional, and simple hardware.
You think those friction catches are enough in weather, or just wrap a bungy around it?
Best, Bob S/V Restless

Good question...they really do seem to have excellent holding strength. If thing got completely outa control, it wouldn't take much effort to wrap web tie around it.

I too looked at the Edson tables...too small for what I needed.

Here are some interesting designs:

FYI, I blew-out my knee skiing on my 30th birthday also

Talking cockpit tables

Yeah, the Edson tables are too small for me too, but they sell just the hardware alone so you can make your own... I've just had too many other things on the list, like the aft cabin overhead, which have needed to be done first.

When you get to the cockpit table it means you're getting pretty close...

Thanks for that link; interesting designs.

And I don't ski much anymore; no time.

Best, Bob S/V Restless

Dear Trim,

I meant to ask in my previous post, where you bought the hinges(Folding). I have a friend coming down later this month from the USA and can bring them.

Thanks

Alan
