Third project was this shower seat top. The teak one we bought rotted (?!) in less than 3 months. I built a duplicate out of Western Cedar and it lasted twice as long but eventually cracked (it was too thin of stock).
I built this one after out of poplar as a backup which we are now using. I know, I know, poplar will rot no matter what the finish, but I am prepared to build yet another from some cypress I have acquired since.
Splines are sapele and its finished with Watco Danish Oil (for color) and Zissner Seal Coat (shellac).
