Dude, nice!!! How old is it, has it held up well? Tony
@Tony , it is only about 8 months since we did it but I saw it last week and it still looks the same
Cedar? or Mesquite?
It is Apitong, considerably hard to work with and terrible little splinters, but it is some tough stuff
Actually this is the second shower I have done out of apitong, the other about a year and a half ago I need to go check on it to see how it is holding up
Very cool. What kind of finish is on it?
I sure hope the Owners don't get splinters where they wouldn't want to get splinters. My cousin and I did one in Western Cedar decades ago for a house he was building. Only complaint was that you really had to keep the finish up to date or you got water staining of the wood. Thing lasted forever though. He tore it our about 20 years later and put in some sort of plastic panel one.
The finish is boiled linseed oil, mopped on until it quite soaking it up, I was afraid to put a finish like poly, because of the chance of trapping water
