Tables and other Wooden Things Created at Emerald MarineThe boat carpenters at Emerald Marine are also skilled furniture craftsmen and get a certain pleasure in working from a foundation of straight planes and 90 degree angles.  Although you may see curves and soft edges on custom furniture pieces, freed from the confines of having to work around the turn of a bilge or side of a hull, inspiration can flow freely.  Steam bending, curved laminations, or even vacuum bagged shapes are all within the realm of possibilities in creating a unique shape or matching a current style. Traditional furniture is a part of what we do as well as custom designed accessories to match your boat’s special interior and space use needs.
