Some facts about Teak Wood
As an imported hardwood, one variety of teak is farmed on plantations in Indonesia, Africa and Latin America.
Sometimes referred to as plantation teak, it supplies the bulk of teak used domestically. Burmese teak grows naturally in Myanmar or Burma.
When sold domestically, the distinction between plantation and Burmese teak is typically not recognized because of its lack of significant differences.
Teak has a high oil content resulting in the highest decay resistance among all natural lumber products. The high oil content also provides a natural resistance to weather and bugs to a lesser degree.
Teak has natural resiliency, making it resistant to cracking and warping under humidity changes that wreak havoc on other types of hardwood.
Because of its natural properties, teak has been a mainstay for wet-weather applications besides pools, lakes or near the ocean, such as teak boat docks, ship and boats hulls and decks and other functions that benefit from its natural resistance to the elements.
Wood Carvings, Picture Frames and Biltong Cutters
As one of the most expensive of all the hardwood species, due in part to its high demand worldwide, it adds beauty, tradition and durability.
Sometimes used universally for indoor flooring and as veneers for panels and furniture, it’s also used for fine furniture, picture frames and candle holders, and as a carving wood for bowls, spindles, handles, knobs, knickknacks, biltong cutters, plaques and mementos.
