    Its a great idea, and you may want to visit a few woodworking sites to gain insight on types of finishes to use that will help keep your maintenance to a minimum. Any small woodworking/cabinet shop should be able to mill the planks, but they may charge a small premium for teak, since it is a waxy wood.

    If you machine sanded it - it would be perfectly flush on the front after gluing. They could glue it up and run it through a 48" sander (that is the max width I know of for sanding machines), but again the costs will go up due to teak. There are glues just for teak and marine applications.

    Or for a more hand-finished look, it could be pre sanded and just glued and finished, with little edge issues touched up by hand.

    All our ideas we like we can always use on our own houses!

    I'd use porcelain tile that looks like wood - there are lots of choices and most are extremely good-looking IMO

    Most woods will gray or have to be sanded and sealed over time. Ipe is a nice mid gray and if planned in the color layout is a good choice. I personally haven used wood in wet areas many times & would just have slipped a 3/8" tempered glass sheet in front w/ shower rails or floated the glass off the wall an inch or two w/through glass posts.and not have to worry about the color or maintenance.
