I got REAL lucky and ended up with a stack of teak deck boards, 3.5×1. I’m thinking- patio chairs of some sort, our old Adirondacks are shaky these days. There will be a few design issues with the narrow deck boards, and I do not want to buy wider/ thicker boards to meet plans. I can edge join when I have to, but would prefer to work the design such that I can mostly use what I have.
I can find lots of plans online for porch gliders, most from cedar. Seems like they all use 2x stock for the bottom frame. I am wondering if my one inch teak would be just about as strong as 2x cedar?
What other projects come to mind, traditional teaky things. I’d almost feel like a picnic table would be a waste of really expensive wood. But- it is a pretty large stack of wood. I can not store it forever.
TIA for your thoughts and ideas.
