teak

Teak, which is originally native to Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), is now grown on plantations throughout Southeast Asia. However, this plantation Teak is greatly inferior to 100% Burmese Mountain Teak, which we supply exclusively. Burmese Teak is used for fine boatbuilding thanks to its beautiful golden tones, stability, durability and resistance to the elements. It machines well if tools are kept sharp and glues moderately well.
