    There was, a couple of weeks ago, a few pictures from someone about a duckboard he had made. Sorry but forget the name. Inspired by this I made one myself. A happy few hours in the shed.

    Makes my afternoon spent watching football on TV seem rather slothful.

    Looks good , what kind of wood did you use ?
    My wife bought me a router years ago that I haven't used , so might try it.

    I used a sheet of 12 mm marine ply. Made a jig to space the curves equidistantly. Cut the slots and then routed a chamfer cutter around the edges of everthing. Stuck some strips of neoprene foam to the underside to protect the shower base. Prior to this made a paper template and then a hardboard template. This was to ensure the thing actually fitted as sometimes a paper template can be bent and Nothing is more annoying than to hack bits off afterwards. A few coats of waterproof stain and there you have it.

    Made a good job of it (y)(y). Might have a go as my van came without one. If you hear more shouting and swearing emanating from the South of Glasgow , you'll know where it's coming from:D.
