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.

Re: Resin dinette table

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.

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.
