Subfloor for 3/4" Hand Scrapped Teak

I'm putting in 3/4"x5" Hand Scrapped Teak T&G flooring over 2x10 12"oc. The subfloor down now is 1/2" BC plywood nailed and glued down which is staying. I plan on putting down another layer of 1/2" BC 4 layer PWD to raise the floor up to level.

Should I put a layer of rosin paper between the layers of plywood? I plan on using 1-1/2" crown staples 4" oc to faster the second layer of 1/2" PWD down. Then a layer of rosin paper under my Teak flooring.

I plan on leveling the floor with a few shingles where it dips a bit so it will be level for the 1/2" PWD.

Thanks
Bob

Glue/screw the plywood layers together. That will give you a stronger subfloor. Then rosin under the teak.

Thanks, what glue should be used here? I have some areas that require shims so there sill be some gaps between the layers in some spots where the plywood would be bridging the shims (< 10"). Can't I just use construction adhesive on the joists and use 1-1/2" x 1/4" pneumatic crown staples every 4"? Where's it going to go.

Thanks

Staples don't hold like screws. Use 2 inch screws every 6 inches along each joist. Glue in between also using a good carpenters glue. Lay down rosin paper or 15lb roofing paper under the flooring.
