TEAK 4/4

TEAK LUMBER – 4/4" – FAS
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths

Most Teak is a rich golden brown in color, but may also vary from rich brown to a deep, chocolate brown with dark, almost black, markings. The grain may be either straight or wavy with conspicuous growth rings. It has a coarse texture and oily feel, as well as a leather-like odor.

Teak is a medium density wood with high crushing strength and low resistance to shock. The coarse, abrasive texture of Teak makes it difficult to saw, producing a severe blunting effect. Pre-boring is recommended before nailing. It stains well and produces a beautiful finish when oiled.

Teak may be hard to glue.

Teak is most often used in shipbuilding and decking. Since it is acid-resistant, it is used in laboratories as bench tops and chemical vats. It is also used in furniture and cabinet making and in garden furniture.
