Topic tags/keywords: question

Has anyone ever made a shower caddy? I plan on building one, but I’m not sure which wood or finish would be best for that atmosphere.

I found this, made of teak. That would be a good choice for you as well.

I would guess the wood used in steam rooms would be suitable.

My concern would be how to hold the parts together without it falling apart in a shower. I think epoxy or a waterproof adhesive would work. You should design it so any joints will have a maximum glue surface. M&T joints are good. Any mechanical fastener (nail or screw) will loosen eventually.

Have your say...
