Project Log:  Saturday, October 20, 2012

The curved compass support area on the port side of the companionway was trimmed and finished on top and on its exposed side, but beneath was still raw plywood.  I'd had a plan for this all along, and now that the solid companionway trim was in place I could complete this final area.

I resawed a scrap cherry board into a 1/4" thickness, which I then cut to fit the area beneath the compass, scribing it to fit the edges and curve as needed.   The 1/4" thickness corresponded with the depth of the overhang of the nearby companionway fiddles.  I kept a slight reveal at the outer edge, which somehow better tied in with the surrounding trim.

With the trim cut and sanded smooth, I glued it in place.
