Re: Cabinet material?

Very nice. I can only see a corner of the photo on the I pad for some reason but your work looks awesome. Did the plywood come with the veneer already attached? How did you round the corner post?

The corner post I brought from South Jersey Lumberman, he used to make a lot of the trim and teak products for Egg Harbour yachts and other boatbuilders in South Jersey also offers a lot of different types of trim and teak lumber. I applied the teak veneer after the cabinet was constructed.

Re: Cabinet material?

What method did you use to apply the teak veneer? I'm assuming that since the cab was already constructed that you didn't vacuum bag it...

Re: Cabinet material?

I've used contact glue before but wanted some wiggle room - found this glue-http://www.veneersupplies.com/products/Flex-Pro-FSV-Adhesive-Size-Gallon.html
wonderful stuff. Glued it and then clamped it worked great!

Re: Cabinet material?

Another option.

In our 50 foot catamaran we used 1/2" lite plywood for all the cabinet boxes. A bamboo veneer was then vacuum bagged to the exterior pieces.
It was absolutely amazing how much lighter the cabinet boxes were when made off this material. We also used some nydacore panels to build out some of the "furniture" pieces. Theses were covered with epoxy and painted.

Re: Cabinet material?

A word of warning...if you plan to use your boat down in this area ( turks and caicos islands) and in the region generally, and you are doing your own woodworking, be mindful that we have Formosa termites here. They will eat anything with cellulose in it. They WILL eat cypress, mahogany, teak, and pressure treated wood. Don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise.

Be sure any wood you install on a boat is sealed up enough to keep the little buggers from finding it. They will eat plywood and leave the glue. They will eat the homeowners type of foam insulation. I am aware of at least three nice boats here that have been totally destroyed by termites within the past year. And the six year old roof of our house.

And a lot of other things. Cardboard. Stacks of paper. Anything with cellulose.

Seal it up well, and you shouldn't have a big problem. Even paint will do it. But leave no fresh cut edges anywhere.

Re: Cabinet material?

I'm considering Marine - Tricel Honeycomb for cabinetry.
If anyone knows a distributor in the EU please let me know..

Re: Cabinet material?

Most cabinets are plywood. Exterior or marine is nice for the waterproof glue. Others are used though. Teak plywood , although more expensive eliminates the difficutly and cost of final finishing with hardwood,or other materials or paints etc. In the end, it makes life alot easier. There are cored materials for weight savings, but seldom seen except on high end or racing stuff.
