Hi,

Looking for some advice. Have made a bath panel from some plywood to which I have added some auto adhesive vinyl planks to somehow match the floor, hope they're almost as good as the LVT flooring and won't come off.
At the bottom I have placed a small plinth which is siliconed all around and fixed with screws, hopefully it stays in place. On top of this I have placed the larger bit, have used some dowels for alignment, looks good from my pov.
Now this is the part that I want to be easily removable, should there ever be another problem with a leaking bathtub waste.
Because not everything is at a perfect angle, there's about 3-4mm of the panel sticking out of the edge of the bathtub, have attached a picture.
I know I could simply silicone it and it would look like it's meant to be that way, but removal would be a pain, plus cleaning all the silicone and applying new one.
What else could I use to make that edge waterproof? Is there some wood paint, oil, wax, some magic spray that would be better. Not expecting a lot of water ingress on that area, but just to be safe.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Assuming the plumbing has been done properly it's highly unlikely that you'll never ever have to remove it so just silicone around it.

Can't do that unfortunately because of the bath frame underneath and thickness of panel.
Should've bought the 12mm ply instead of 18mm, oh well, I guess silicone it is then.
