FSC Teak

I want to make a teak grating for the sole of my cockpit but would prefer to use FSC Teak only. Does anyone know where I can order some FSC teak planks?

In an unrelated question, if I am going to paint with a 2-part polyurethane...will normal masking tape suffice or will I have a problem with the strong solvents in the paint?

Thanks,
Bob

Most exotic material suppliers are members of NHLA which supports FSC

I don't know where your located, but Reel Lumber here in So.Cal is a NHLA member and is where I get my materials


Oh, and as for tape, don't use normal masking tape, use at least Blue or if you can find orange painters tape, that would be even better

Thanks PDP,

I checked out the NHLA website but unfortunately they didn't have anything about where to obtain FSC certified lumber. They only mentioned their own "Sustainable Forestry Initiative" program, which after a quick look appeared to be an industry-catering FSC knockoff with completely meaningless standards, and of which members of NHLA can choose whether or not to voluntarily join The good news is I did find a couple of websites in the that I can order from.

Thanks also for the tape-tip...I figured it was a straightforward question...I'm going to get the tape on Saturday and then I'll pray for good painting weather this weekend!

Use the 3m Fineline plastic masking tape at the very edges and then tape over it with their blue painters tape to get sufficient coverage of the masking. The paper stuff just doesn't stick to the hull well enough to prevent the paint from getting underneath IMHO.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

FSC tropical hardwood

Try going thru the US Green Building Council (USGBC) for information on Forest Stewardship Council and plantation/sustainable teak sources USGBC.org
