In answer to Jake…......

I would say again, water is not the problem. It is everything else. If was only water, then you could do wood. Is the bathroom a utility, or a place of beauty….. durability be damned?

That is your decision, Manitario.

The great thing here is…......you get to make your own decision….....and there isn’t much in life that isn’t a compromise of some sort. But compromises bring their baggage, and you have to decide what you want to carry.

For me, a bathroom is 90% utility, and 10 % art. So my bathroom is pretty damn practical, but not cheap, and has some beauty. A lot of wood, but not where the chemicals fly.

Jake, yah, I like teak, and have seen a lot of it on boats, but not on the bathroom vanities….......(-:

But then again, Manitario, it could be a challenge….........but I still bet it would be an issue. If you make it work, there would be a lot of people who would want to know about it, including me…...(-:

Need more ideas in here for the mix…...............or Jake needs to come in here and put me down…....(-:

Like I said, an interesting topic…..........
