    Need Source for Teak Molding-gctid356082

    I got our new Splendide stackable washer and dryer in. Now I need to enlarge the washer compartment in heigth. Does anyone have a good source for Teak molding. I am specificlly looking for the corner piece to the compartment. This makes for a nice clean corner and provides the surface to secure the plywood panels to.

    Any help will be greatly appreciate.

    Thanks.

    I'll make it for your Pat.

    I just started a new business. www.vikingbay.co

    Currently I'm making some side grill tables for nearby the boat grills but I would love the opportunity to have a look at what you need.

      Pat,

      Based on previous wood working projects I did on our Monk trawler that had a 100% teak interior, what I found is that modern teak does not necessarily match well with older teak. They don't have the same type of trees anymore (old growth vs. fast growing farm teak which is better for the environment than old growth but it looks different). I discovered on my trawler that a light colored/clear (i.e. no knots) piece of western cedar, when stained to match, fits in very good. I had to play with combining a few stains to get the color just right but the results came out better for our trawler than the real teak I had bought. May be worth a try....

        Much of the teak is now farm grown, also teak ages and gets darker, there is a difference in teak grown in south america on farms and the Eastern Countries. Hard to find old growth teak.

        Fisheries supply has teak corners, as does many other online sites. Look online for Teak, there are companies that have Burmese teak. Heartwood is darker.

            Check these guys out. I've used them for a few projects on the boat and was very happy.

            They're not cheap but either is teak. They made me some custom stair noses for the companion way. Real nice.

            They are located on Vancouver Island

              You might go to Crosscut Hardwoods in Seattle, check out the material available and ask them to recommend someone to mill up some corners for you.

              they are on first Avenue South

                Pat; If you can come up with a piece that'll cover the materials, I can mill it on my CNC to whatever shape you want. Even better if you have a profile from an old piece, I can digitize it and extend it across the whole piece.

                Your Teak is new enough you should be able to find a board that'll work. Martin Plywood right there on Broadway (across from Wendy's restaurant) and they will sell you any shape or size by the foot. You'd only need a piece a few inches bigger than the finished trim.

                    Yeah... but it's fun overkill... and it's the coolest thing Tommy. You just mount the sample piece, tell it to probe the original and then it makes a 3D mesh. You them just cut the stock with a 1/4" ballnose and sand. No work at all (and 60 inches per second).

                    It can do some cool stuff:

                              Martin Plywood has the largest stock of exotics you could ever ask for and they're right in Everett. They have everything from Alder to Zebrawood and will sell a single board foot of any of it.
