This picture, taken just before installation, shows how my custom yacht cabinets can be fabricated entirely in my workshop from exact measurements of all adjoining surfaces on-board. Given that the inside of boats are only curves and obtuse angles, this is not as simple as making a set of kitchen cabinets! Moreover, the finish on the adjacent woodwork, usually teak veneer, has faded over the years and this means I must treat the new wood to color match. Fortunately, after years of experimenting with different techniques, I can now do all the varnishing off the boat to spare the owners the smell of drying varnish. In-shop time is always more efficient and predictable. That is why I can give a fixed quote up front on even this custom work. Installations, on the other hand, are estimated. With small jobs like this one, two visits to the yacht are usually sufficient.
