I was wondering if anybody has ever used a wooden bath mat. I saw a nice
in myer and I was wondering if they work well. I was also wondering
has made one. The ones I have seen for sale in stores are made
from pine that
has been stained and sealed. When I did an internet search I
saw some very nice
cedar and teak mats. Im sure I could make one without
much hassle. Anyway could
anyone think of any negatives or positives for
for the ideas above?
Thanks in advance!

Cedar, teak, white oak are all good "water" woods. A good mat should
not slip. I have a rubber bath mat made from spent tires--but it
rests on a concrete floor. Rubber may react with vinyl or other

I think what you're looking for is generically called a "duck board".
They are used any where there's a wet/muddy surface that you need to
stand/walk on. We had one in front of the laundry tubs for years.
Test drive one in bare feet before you spend a lot of time or money on
it. I always found them less than comfortable, if the ratio of cracks to
boards was too high. Wide boards take forever to dry. Pretty much need a
floor drain- once the wood is saturated, that water has to go somewhere.
Visited Belize in recent years. A fellow pointed out a few houses that
were built entirely from Mahogany. Belize was a large exporter of
timber 30s -40s (?) and then the mass cutting and hurricanes shortened
Those homes were never painted, treated or anything else.
Now they may running out of lobster.
