O.K. I know I’m going to catch some flack on this on the LJ side. But I’m new to LJs and believe that if you limit your materials you limit your capabilities.
I started playing with FRP sheeting a few years ago. You know, the stuff with the bubbly looking surface that you see in restrooms in the finer truck stops sometimes.
This stuff is GREAT for some work. It’s almost indestructible, cuts well, and will just plain outlive most wood in really bad environments.
I redid a laundry room with it a few years ago and it worked great. I lined a couple of drawer bottoms with it a while back because they got a lot of wet stuff in them and the drawers can double as small bathtubs now.
Just made the wife a small tray with some scraps and threw FRP in as the bottom.
Getting ready to do a built-in dresser in the Master Bedroom and thinking about doing the drawer bottoms in FRP.
Any thought from the dust-breathers?
