For those keeping track, I did finish the coffee table before starting the rebuild on Aspettami the 1982 Bayfield 25 sailboat.

The coffee table is, as always Cypress and mahogany with white oak framesa and copper rivets. It sits on a large Bois d’arc root that I picked up off the shorline of lake Texom, then ground and chisled to hold the boat level. The top is a custom cut piece of 1/4” acrylic.

How delightful! About how large is it? It’s such a perfect replica that it’s hard to tell its size. Thanks for sharing.

I believe that is the most novel coffee table I have very seen! Good design and execution! Thanks for sharing.
