As one of the most sought-after lumber species, Teak is an exotic hardwood best known for its smell and exceptional resistance to rotting. The most premium teak available, Burmese Teak, is naturally grown in Southern Asia (Formerly Burma) and is golden brown with a straight grain pattern. Teak is widely known as a wood that has a high amount of oil inside of it, which makes it highly resistant to water.
Uses of Teak Hardwood
Due to its resistance to water, Teak lumber is heavily used for boatbuilding and other marine applications. Teak hardwood is an exterior grade lumber, which means it can also be used as decking, furniture, and outside applications.
