Head Case
My new old boat (Sandpiper) came with a full wall mirror above the sink cabinet. It was quite smoky and no one my age needs that much mirror in the head (bathroom) so I removed it and replaced it with some teak veneer and this medicine cabinet. It looks better in there now and the storage is very much appreciated when I cruise.
The veneer was applied with hot hide glue and a veneer hammer, the cabinet is teak, and all were colour matched to the existing 35 year old teak plywood with a blend of dyes.
The signature sandpipers on the knobs are not quite Ebony and Ivory but they are Ebony and bone.

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

beautiful work.the knobs are a very cool touch.
I’m scrolling through the photos, in awe of the beauty and craftsmanship .. and then I saw the door knobs … 

They took my breath away!
