Convertible Dinner Table
This convertible table was commissioned by the owners of this ‘megayacht’ in Miami to make dinner on board closer to what they enjoy at home. Of course, a permanent table large enough to seat everyone would overwhelm the cockpit area. The modern lines of the table are consistent with the Italian design of the vessel. The legs, or pedestals, are bolted to the deck, the folding wood framed “leaves” are attached by several chrome hinges, the see-through top is unbreakable acrylic, and the painted finish called Awlgrip is tough as nails. This simple design can be used when either closed or open. The shape of the wood frame acts like a sea rail on a small table to keep stuff from sliding off the side and when open it’s shape provides the support for the leaf extension. Very shipshape!
