Default Wood Bath Mat

Hi All,
I was wondering if anybody has ever used a wooden bath mat. I saw a nice example in myer and I was wondering if they work well. I was also wondering if anybody has made one. The ones I have seen for sale in stores are made from pine that has been stained and sealed. When I did an internet search I saw some very nice cedar and teak mats. Im sure I could make one without much hassle. Anyway could anyone think of any negatives or positives for for the ideas above?
Thanks in advance!

the problem is that a wood bath mat won't absorb the water that's dripping off you when you get out of the tub or shower. The result is that the floor is going to get wet, and water will accumulate on the lowest part of that floor (typically in a corner).

If you want a wood bath mat, then put it on top of a normal bath mat to do the job that a bath mat is supposed to; absorb the water that's dripping off you until you towel off.
