We're replacing the plastic portholes (or portlights
, see separate thread
) with SS portholes from New Found Metals. The replacements
are really high quality and should take care of both of the problems with the current
and barely translucent "glass".
have caused the interior teak
around the frames to get damaged and I want to cover up that damage with a layer of teak
veneer when we install the new portholes and trim. I have a hardwood source that can probably get me teak veneer but he is more inclined to carry other exotic hardwoods so I thought I'd ask here if there are any well known sources in the southern California
area that I should contact ?
We will also need one or two sheets
of 3/4" teak plywood
a bit later, for interior
cabinetry and that is another reason for looking for a new source. To be on the safe side, even if the cabinetry is interior I was thinking it probably needs to be marine
to stand up to humidity and occasional wetness ?
Insights and suggestions are appreciated.
