Reclaimed Wood Dinette Tabletop

We purchased a new house and the previous owner left behind a couple of broken down Adirondack chairs with foot stools. I was going to haul them to the dump when I realized they were made of teak. So I decided to try and reclaim the wood. Tore them apart, cut the rotten ends of each board, and ran the boards through a planner to remove the weathered and damaged areas. Then edge glued the boards with biscuits to create a new table top to replace the formica one in our Bambi.

Great idea.


Note that you can find a variety of finishes for teak that will preserve the brown color and keep it sealed. One of my favorites is an oil-type finish that soaks in and preserves the wood.


If you have scraps left, and lots of patience and skill, you could build a set of lattice duckboards for your shower...

If it were up to me I'd do just that. However we had beautiful teak grates in the showers in our boat and my wife got tired of having to clean hair, soap scum, etc. out of them so she has vetoed the idea of putting that in the Bambi. Of course, being male I never noticed such things.

I think I might make something to go on top of the deck that the toilet sits on though. The wood adds a sense of warmth to the trailer.

This is beautiful! What is the weight difference between the formica and teak table? I wanted to replace my formica table with Corian (to match my kitchen counters) but the service tech at the factory said it would add too much weight.

So what did you use to finish it? Looks awesome and been thinking about doing something similar for our flying cloud, I love wood working, but hate staining/finishing...
