Anyone have a small piece of teak to sell?

I'm talking small here--all I need is a piece 5" x 3/8" x 3/8" to fix a broken teak door jamb to my head. If you have such a scrap and are willing to part with it, let me know.

Thanks.

I know they aren't cheap, but Worst Marine usually stocks small teak stock like that. Shouldn't be too expensive since it is that small.

I have plenty of scrap pieces left from projects. I would suspect however, that the postage (& handling) cost for me to ship it to you, would equal or exceed what you could buy it for locally.

T34C has a good recommendation - but if you have no luck, then PM me. What I have is the brownish color teak - not sure if it matches your door jamb.

I found this supplier in Virginia. Not sure if it is near you, but they probably have scrap.

Send me your address and I will send you the piece.
All the best,

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didn’t work before.

Don’t waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat
Never design a boat that is weaker then the mast

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.

Now there's an offer you shouldn't refuse. You're a good man Robert.

Happen to have several thousand (well, hundreds anyway) available. Measure app. 1.5" X 8" X 1/2", several random lengths also available. Beautiful gray color, most already have at least one predrilled hole handy for attaching to almost anything. Pre-sealed on three sides with tough black sealant to keep water out. Just tell me how many you want, no minimum, you pay shipping from Anacortes. Hurry, going fast (to the dump).

Let me know if you don't get it

I have plenty of scraps. It would cost me all of ~0.42 to send you one or two, so if for some reason you don't get them, let me know.

Sounds like an interesting deck project; how'd it go? And why are they all 8 inches long? The plot thickens .... inquiring minds want to know.......
