Teak Porthole End Table

This reader-submitted project incorporates details from other sources to put a unique spin on a standard piece of furniture.

My name is Adam Rung from Adam Rung Woodworks. This is my Teak Porthole End Table. The name is pretty self-explanatory. I made the table out of Teak wood and a porthole that was recovered from a ship in Nova Scotia. I generally work with regionally grown hardwoods and reclaimed materials, but I chose Teak for this project because it has traditionally been used in the ship-building community.

  1. Adam,
    Fantastic table. Have you considered putting port in upside down?

  3. Very nice effect, and o good use of a salvaged ship’s ‘scuttle’..

    Please excuse my pedantry, but may I tell you that a ‘Porthole’ is a large doorway in the sides of some ships, through which passengers and cargo pass. Windows, like the one you used, are known as scuttles! (Usually round of course!)

    I like the look of this. I also thought the scuttle might have been better the other way around, but then you’d have a well in the table top. That might be awkward for wiping up spills!
    So, 10/0 for this one.
