Interstate Grand Tour Teak Shower Mat

Was looking for a bathroom shower mat and found one made from teak on the Airstream store. Price was a little steep ($260 plus shipping) for me. So I decided to make one myself from a couple of old broken teak chairs that I had laying around. I have a small wood shop and a 2019 interstate gt, so I proceeded to make a template out of some cardboard that I pulled out of the recycle bin. Then I got to work disassembling the chairs. It was great to recycle these, as they were far beyond repair with too many broken slats. I milled all the teak chair wood (looked like brand new wood!) to size. Finally got enough slats and bottom support rails to start assembly. I used some stainless steel 316 marine grade screws To put everything together. Then I used the cardboard template and cut the mat to size to fit the GT bath floor. I also applied some Life Grip Anti Slip water tape on the bottom of the floor slats so not to mark up the bath floor. Wallah..... everything fit perfect!

Looks great! Nice job.

We have a teak mat that came with our used unit, but it rocks back and forth in the shower pan. I tried applying extra layers of shower floor safety tape to the short edges, but it still rocks. May have to get rid of it and try something else, though I don't really want to, because it looks nice. I guess I could try sanding down the long edge that's causing the rocking, but that will probably take a while since I don't really have the right tools. Ah well, 1st world problems.

I have a teak mat that I bought for my Lounge and rebuilt to fit my GT. I bought some pool cue rubber handle-end bumpers
and screwed them to the bottom with SS screws so that it rests on the rubber pads. It is very stable.
