Teak bath floor for Sport 22FB

Got our handmade teak floor for the main bath and the shower. Awesome addition that made our AS feel like a land yacht. When you arrive back home, simply lift the floor boards and sweep or mop to clean debris.

The company https://www.teakworks4u.com advertises 22 FB for shower or main bath but if you are buying for 22FB Sport, they now have our floor tracing. Be sure to specify SPORT. 22FB is too wide.

That does look lovely and would help with getting dust/sand/rocks stuck to your feet when stepping out of the shower...I am guessing it was in the $160-ish range?

they want over$600 for the batch /shower set

ill make my own

just place packing paper on the floor and trace the outline
use any wood you have handy , like white oak, cherry, cedar and use strips of PT underneath

too clean the floor, just lift it out.

They are expensive but the function served goes beyond esthetics. By having them in both shower and bath area, you never worry about slippage from water or an uncomfortable stone bruise from stray ones left on the floor.

Yes, they are pricey but my wife and I gave them to each other for Valentineís Day. Since I really donít have the tools to do this (my expertise is electrical and electronic engineering) the cost was something to be considered carefully.

One option to look at is buying "deck tiles" and just cutting the to fit. Ikea, Home Depot and various other places offer these "floating" deck solutions that just click together...many have plastic backing, some have wood backing. Home Depot has ipe ones that are 2x2' for ~$37...should be pretty easy to use that as a starting point to DIY...though adding the cost of those and if your time is worth much it may close the $ gap with just buying them pretty quickly.

Mike, that really looks nice.

I know it's obvious to everyone but me, but what is "PT". I know it ain't "toilet paper" as that's backwards. I literally have every tool imaginable it's time I do a project like that.

I can't say for sure but my guess would be pressure treated to resist rot.

I would recommend using all teak. It is a very oily wood so it is very resistant to rot. More importantly it does not get slippery when wet, that is why it is used on boat decks.

I would NOT use any pressure treated lumber where humans go barefoot--it can be very toxic, and could also potentially stain the shower floor. Particularly the greenish stuff--it is made with CCA preservative, which is IIRC, Copper/Copper Arsenate! That stuff has been banned in California because of leaching and toxicity...

Stick with teak for all the wooden parts if you build one. Note that teak is notoriously difficult to glue because of its oily nature. Marine supply or Rockler woodworking (stores and online) should carry adhesives that work on the stuff...

It should slowly weather to a nice soft gray color if left alone.

If you want it to stay brown, marine supply places have oil-based finishes and treatments specifically for unfinished teak that will maintain the color without making it sticky or toxic, and will help it resist water even better...

The most beautiful deck grates for boats I've ever seen were from a small wooden boat shop in San Pedro, California years ago. They were interlocked teak strips custom milled on a special machine, assembled with half-lap joints and glue, and then edged with solid teak. Totally custom, and expensive as hell, but they were absolutely stunning...

I believe he is referring to "Pressure Treated" wood ... the subsequence comment about PT wood having potentially toxic chemicals is something to consider. (It is also not recommended for campfires for the same reasons.)

I would probably try stainless pocket screw joinery along with some physical interlocking of some sort. Never worked with teak however. I have this motorized pocket hole machine that I have been using for interior framing believe it or not, works great in tight places or where you might have to move a stud later for rough-ins.

yes to SS screws
