Corner Fiddles on a new Galley Table? Or open corners?

I'm building a new gallery table and while I think it would be neat to have fiddles wrap all the way around the rounded corners, my wife would rather have open corners to facilitate sweeping crumbs from the table.

I think she is correct and open corners would be the practical solution, but the rounded corners would just look cool.

Anyone have an argument either way?

Do what your wife suggests...that's generally a wise policy to follow in life as well as boating. It also means that spills won't pool on the table as likely. Do you have a photo of the table??

BTW, it would be a saloon table, not a galley table, and certainly never a gallery table.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

open corners= easier to sweep crumbs.
closed corners= no more wine spilled on upholstery or on sole making it slippery.

BTW, SD it would be a saloon table , not salon table, unless you are a searay owner, or french, or in the hair and nail care business.

Can you male them removable? Also, I saw where a builder had the Corian curve up to the wood to keep liquid from seeping between the two.

if it will be used to convert the settee to a double, the fiddles help prevent the cushions sliding all over the place while you are sleeping. there are some great ideas about this and other projects in Spurrs Boat Book Upgrading Your Cruising Sailboat.

but again, if Momma Bear ain't happy, nobody's happy... :P

My fiddles fit into blind holes in the table, so you can use them or not. It also may have something to do with the way the table can be lowered to make a double berth. =)

Best Regards,

Don't make the holes blind ones, but have the go all the way through the table instead... they're easier to keep clean if you do this. Blind holes will gather all sorts of gunk.

...but the gunk helps keeps the fiddles from falling out of the holes!

It's a feature!
