Teak Guide

The botanical name is Tectona Grandis, but commonly known as Burma teak, Rosawa, Djati, Sagon, Genuine teak, Sagwan, Gia Thi, Tadi. The specie is native to the Southeast Asian countries of Thailand, India, Laos, and Myanmar. Teak plantations have become prominent in Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

Teak is honey golden turning into darker tones with age. Its colour varies greatly when machined showing different shades. Sapwood is pale yelowish, sharply demarkated. Grain sraight, occasionally wavy. Coarse texture. Raw wood surfaces have an oily texture. When freshly milled, teak has a leather-like scent.

Drying process is slowly with no degradation or decay. It is dried to the wetter European standards of 12-15%, which is ideal when used in an exterior situation such as decks and siding, where precision is not demanded.
For inside use or joined in a more precise manner, it is re-dried to 6-8%

Easy to work with both hands or machine tools. However, its high content of silica (up to 1.4%) results in a severe blunting effect on cutters. Glues well despite its oily nature, althoug ocationally it is needed to wipe the oily surface of the wood prior to gluing.
