Re: pvc "lumber"

Here are the PVC spacers I made for two perko connectors. These are for the auto-tiller and the solar panel. Both are mounted in the stern deck and I wanted them raised so they're not submerged from runoff which sometimes pools back there.

Denise, I've got quite a back stock of wood too and I resolved to use up what I have around. This winter I did a bathroom vanity out of birch and wenge. Then I took the wall out between our kitchen and living room and built a bead board kitchen island from poplar with wrap around shelves. The island is painted to match our kitchen cabinets (built them too). This week I'll start gluing up the jatoba top.

Since the end is in sight on that project we were pulling out boards for the next round of furniture building this morning. Coffee table and end table out of a slab of natural edge waterfall bubinga with wenge legs; and a new coffee table for the family room from a gonalo alves board I found at Hearnes with some really wild grain, edged in fiddle back maple.

That's AFTER I finish the v-berth cabinets in figured cherry that Kathy wants for the boat that I never got to this winter.

Did I mention this is all using up wood I had in the back of my shop

Re: pvc "lumber"

There's a super glue used with PVC "lumber" called "Super" or "Red Hot" I don;t recall exactly. We used it a lot in exterior trim work with Azek and Koma board.

Another item of possible interest is that the two above can be heated and curved in either direction. It takes specific and even heat, along with a form to mold it around; but it is done all the time to mfgr arched trim.

I'm considering building a ventilator or hatch for the head out of it, so I'll watch this thread with interest

Re: pvc "lumber"

Denise, check out Wooden boat Forum. There're a couple of threads on building single and butterfly hatches.

But be careful. If you spend too much time over there you'll start to think that building a boat is a good idea

Re: pvc "lumber"

denise, some of it can be painted or stained. Some is 100% plastic, some is a plastic-and-sawdust mix. They've all got pros and cons and they are all "floppy" compared to the stiffness of wood.

Sometimes you can also get ipe decking, 5/8" thick, aka "ironwood" and if someone has a split bundle a couple of pieces would be fairly cheap. (Way cheaper than teak.)

Re: pvc "lumber"

thanks gentlemen! The pvc easy to get here locally if I get it. I do have mahogany and some teak even and it goes without saying I do love the look of well finished wood on my boat.
The "hatch" will be about 8 X 14 or 16 and have 3/4 radius rounded corners and top frame I will use clear plexi on this also. I was thinking "butterfly" hinged in the middle but that may mean water leaks.
