Chartered Yacht Trim Work
After removal, this is some of what was installed by the manufacturer of the yacht. I took all the original upholstered pieces back to my workshop and selected the best mahogany and duplicated the original shapes exactly for an easy installation.
The area where the vinyl covered wood removed from the interior.
This interior upgrade was the special touch this chartered luxury yacht needed to impress the guests.
This curved section of mahogany is made up of 3 pieces glued into a large radius, cut on a shaper with a 2″ qtr. round bit.

Pilot console now with lacquered mahogany curved rim installed. What an improvement! The beauty of the wood would not be as great if it were not for the fact that the wood used for this project was all from my own stock of wood collected from local, specifically Coral Gables, storm damaged mahogany trees. Imported ‘Honduran mahogany’ ( Sweitenia macrophylla) does not have the fine qualities as this genuine variety of ‘Cuban’ mahogany (Swietenia mahogani).
