That table pedestal is really cool! I've never seen anything like it.

Table finished and installed

After many weeks and many steps the L lounge table is finished and I installed it today.

The top is a 3/4" ply base with the same marmoleum applied that we installed on our other counter top areas. It is wrapped with a 1/2" solid cherry edging. This took a bit of time. The edging is actually made up of many pieces. Each of the curves was cut out of a larger piece of cherry and then tightly fitted after many visits to the band saw. I thought about steaming a thinner band of cherry but I wanted 1/2" for durability.

Here are a couple of photos...

Table base

I used the pedestal I purchased from Springfield Marine just like I mocked up in the prototype. This pedestal and the slide I built in give us a lot of flexibility in moving the table top.

The pedestal goes up and down. In the up position the table top is at 30" which is good for eating. Then I can slowly lower it down by pulling the lever and just pushing down on the table. I like to work on my laptop at 28" so I can lower it just a bit for that. When we are doing kitchen cleanup we can lower it all the way down to the cushions. Because the pedestal goes down on an arc, as it is lowered the table moves farther away from the kitchen area. So we gain about 6" more walking space around the kitchen sink when the table is all the way down.

Table slide

We also wanted to be able to slide the table out to allow easier access into the L lounge. When we built the arm rest right near the door it really added to the comfort of the L lounge by having an area to lean against. But when the table came along access into the curb side of the L lounge was very tight.

So I built way for the table to slide out of the way using a traditional cabinet drawer slide. The table can slide to the left about a foot and access is much better into the L lounge.

There is a small sliding lock for the slide that will keep everything in place during travel.

Sliding foot rest

One other project up front was to build a foot rest for the person sitting on the curb side of the L lounge. Remember we will be using our laptop as our TV and it will be on the street side sitting on top of that entertainment cabinet we built earlier. One person can sit in the L lounge at the front and have their legs up along the entire front of the lounge. The other person will be sitting on the curb side facing the street side and I wanted a way for them to relax and get their feet up.

So a small slide out was designed. It uses regular cabinet drawer slides. When it's pulled out there is a drop down leg for additional support. I got a particular hinge from Lee Valley for this drop down leg that locks in the up and down position and works great.

Throw a loose cushion on to and you are all set to stretch out. Yes it's a bit tight getting your legs under the table, but it works. Now both of us can relax up front.

Almost done now

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have about a month more of projects and are planning our first shakedown trip in mid-July.

My wife has a couple more cushions to do up front. We both have to tackle the last counter top where we need to fit in a piece of marmoleum that will cross over from the kitchen counter top to the new entertainment cabinet.

Then a few projects in the wet bath to make it work. Some type of rain cover over the window while showering, towel racks, a door handle, ...

All the big projects are in place. Here are a couple of parting shots front and back.

Really coming together nicely.

Great looking work.

Your trailer is gorgeous. Terrific engineering and beautiful craftsmanship. I can appreciate the number of trips to the bandsaw that your edge molding required. Great job!

Love it! Hope we're able to see it sometime.

As an aside, where did you find the goose-neck lamps? Are they 12volt?

Thanks everyone for your compliments. It's great to be near the end of the project.

BD&TT - The "cone" lamps are 12V and we got them at Lowes. However, they get hot so I would look for some LED lamp solution instead.

Balgrn - I'm sure our travels will cross at some point. I'm next door to you in Vermont.
