Teak Wood Lumber
Teak Wood Lumber – Teak wood tends to be a golden or medium brown, the color darkening with age. Teak is a close-grained hardwood with high natural oil and silica content. It is one of the hardest, strongest and most durable of all woods, highly resistant to rotting and almost impervious to the effects of sun, rain, frost or snow. Teak requires little or no maintenance regardless of the environment. It is ideal for all outdoor applications and has been the choice of boat builders for centuries. Teak wood is now a premium wood of choice for designers in hotels, corporate headquarters and upscale homes.
Workability: Teak Wood Lumber is very easy to work, but with a high level of silica (up to 1.4%), it has a pronounced blunting effect on cutting edges. Teak glues and finishes well, though it may be necessary to wipe the surface of the wood with a solvent prior to gluing/finishing to reduce the natural oils on the surface of the wood.
