We were contacted by a local client in need of a Custom Teak Shower floor for his bathroom. After speaking with him in detail he had a unique request for his Teak Shower floor to be placed on top on his existing bathtub. This would allow for the shower to have a multi purpose for a seat and removed to use the tub/shower. We were excited to tackle this unique project and couldn’t wait to get started. Provided with a clear drawing we began milling the teak boards by planing, joining and creating battens for the Teak Shower Floor.
Using FEQ Burmese Teak wood also used in the marine industry allows for the Teak Shower floor to withstand the elements of water, moisture and prevention of mildew. With proper maintenance, the Teak Shower floor can last a lifetime. Each floor is hand crafted and custom made to your specs.
In this project, the client needed a cut out to accommodate the hardware used in the tub for the faucet. With careful and precision cuts we were able to make this clients dream a reality.
After milling the Teak boards and making the Teak battens we were ready to assemble the floor. All battens were cut to clients specs as well as runners for the Teak Shower Floor. We used four runners for this floor to allow for extra support. Each batten was carefully inspected for color, grain pattern and any defects. The topside of the battens were chosen and laid out for assembly. We then measure for length to ensure the right amount of battens are used to achieve the clients specs. Next we begin assembly using the outside runner first measuring as we go to ensure proper specs are being met. Using wood glue, nails and screws the two outside runners are installed. We then assemble the last two runners inside and repeat the process. Before finishing the last two runners we have to account for the cutout needed. We measure each side for the proper distance and cut each batten to accommodate the cutout. Runners are cut to length and used for support for small cutout battens. For a nice touch we like to ease the edge of the runners on the bottom side as well ease the edge of the floor on the topside. We are now ready to sand smooth.
