|True teak of Burma is uniform in color ranging from light to dark brown. Darker brown streaks are present in most specimens.
Teak is a hard, medium density wood with a high crushing strength.
When milled, teak appears to have multiple colors from green to red with a prominent blotchy appearance. This is normal. The color will tan to a nice brown over time.
|Severe blunting effect on cutter edges. Carbide cutters are recommended. Pre-drilling is necessary for both nails and screws. Stains and takes a finish well|
|High-end furniture, boat building, interior molding, cabinetmaking, caskets, outdoor garden furniture, chemical vats, laboratory benches, etc. (teak is acid resistant)|
|Very durable. Extremely resistant to preservative treatment|
Older, more mature teak wood having grown slowly in natural forests, which goes for a very attractive price, is more durable and self-sustaining, whereas the younger teak timber harvested on plantations, not having as many annular rings, is weaker and prone to splitting and warping from water damage.
