Teak oil, the acceleration of decay to the wood caused by water is resisted by the oil inside the wood. Teak also resistant to fungi and mildew.

Construction and joinery

Many traditional wood furniture constructions were designed to provide flexibility for solid wood movement according to weather changes through seasons.

Is it possible to build bathroom furniture using traditional wood furniture construction?

Yes, it is possible. Some of the traditional wood furniture constructions are adequate to be used in building a bathroom furniture.

But, the measure of the wood shrinkage has to be carefully calculated so that the wood movement on extracting or contracting does not damage the design aesthetics and the wood itself.

Floating panel.

The use of raised panel in the bathroom furniture should be avoided because the beveled side of the panel can cause the problem to the wood movement while it extracting, and left a gap between the panel an the frame when it contracting.

Frame size.

The frame width has to be as small as possible to ensure smallest shrinkage. While floating panel construction makes the panel free for movement, the shrinkage that occurs in the frame may cause problems.

A wide frame of a cabinet door can contracting into smallest size and make a gap between the frame and structure, also it can extracting into largest size and make the door jam.

Slat size and distance.

If you use slats rather than the panel, we recommend that the slat size be as small as possible. The distance between slats also needs to be calculated to accept largest size of the slat when it extracting.

The most important to remember when designing bathroom furniture construction is "Any solid wood movement will occur in the extreme".
