That was basically my point, the price of a plain piece of Starboard was over 1/3 of the quoted price of the finished product from Buckwood so I did not see that price as out of line. They put more labor into it to produce the finished product. I know for a fact I could not produce what they are for that price. At this point I am thinking about getting one done for my shower.

I hope, if you get one from them, you post some photos (including close ups) so we can get a good look at it.

Marty, you go first.

Yes, I'll post pictures. I think were going with Buck Woodcraft. We should be able to send them the template with in few weeks so by early June I should have it back.

After thinking about it, even if teak was close in price, I think Star Board is the way to go. Refinishing the old teak grate was a giant PIA.

Again, I ordered a rail mount for an outboard from them. Quality workmanship, fast shipping, and a very fair price. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to deal with them.

At this price I would take a look at a 3D printing service. You can find a bunch online and price are quite cheap. You create your model, upload the file and they give you a price right away. You can get your part created in many different material.

As an example sculpteo is one but there are many.

We got the new shower grate today. We ended up going with 1", non-skid Star Board. I sent John Arbuckle at Buck Woodcraft a template I traced out on a couple of paper bags. He called with a couple of questions and offered a few suggestions. A super guy/company. They're in Marathon and with all the stuff going on from Irma he still fit us in quickly.

The grate is about 2' across on the lonest dimension. It's solid as a rock but just in case John included the cut offs from the square so we could support the center if needed. Cost, including shipping and tax was $353.12

Very nice. I think I decided to keep my current on till it breaks again. At that point I will probably follow your route for a replacement. No need to rush into these things ya know.

I like the look and the chamfered holes.

When I looked at your wood grate, it reminded me of a custom table we're having made to match a Nelson bench we own. I hired a real craftsman in PA near Lancaster (Amish Dutch country) to make it. Here's a pic of the table that costs us just a bit more than your grate. It's made out of maple. I bet he could work in teak at a reasonable price.

What about the plastic decking lumber sold at home supply stores? You can get it in a sort of wood-like color, if white won't look right.

I have the stuff called "Trex" on my sundeck at home. After 15 years, it looks OK, but not as good as teak allowed to age to silver. The plastic in Trex allows it to sag, so my deck boards are now wider and not as deep as when they were installed. All of the gap between the boards has disappeared, so now when it rains I get puddles, instead of the water running off between the boards.

I wouldn't use it to replace real wood for outdoor furniture.

Somehow I missed this when posted. That’s a nice looking grate Larry. The way he countersunk those holes is a nice touch .
