Galley ledge how thick is it and what is it made out of.
I may store things on it when traveling or between trips.
halfdome, Danny wrote:Ron, your question isn't that clear but if you're asking about the counter top, it is customary in counter top construction to have a stiffener like a 3/4" x 1 1/2 piece of lumber as a self edge.
I make my teardrop counter top out of 1/2" Baltic Birch plywood with a 3/4" x 3" plywood webbing ( front, rear, sides and middle) glued and stapled to the Baltic Birch.
I pre drill pocket screw holes in the webbing to facilitate the installation of the top in the galley.
After the plam is applied to the top surface I finish it up with a nice piece of 3/4" x 1 1/4" hardwood lumber.
You could skip the lumber edge for any wood and use plam for your finished self edge.
I finish the lumber and underside of the counter top with pre-catalized lacquer to help keep the moisture balance in check.
Moisture balance is extremely important, especially since we use these teardrops in outdoor conditions.
by saying with a 3/4" x 3" plywood webbing ( front, rear, sides and middle) .....you mean a frame under the top. so the top has no visible screw or other fasteners showing, as well as extra support.
PLAM stands for Plastic Laminate... is that sheets or a liquid? (That was a new one on me had to look it up.)
