Teak-without and with finisher.
Teak is often used for the construction of both indoor and outdoor furniture. Teak's high oil content, strong tensile strength and tight grain makes it particularly suitable for outdoor furniture applications. Over time teak will mature to a silvery-grey finish.
Teak has been used as a boat building material for over 150 years. In addition to relatively high strength, teak is also highly resistant to rot, fungi and mildew. Teak has a relatively low shrinkage ratio, which makes it excellent for applications where it undergoes periodic changes in moisture. Teak has the unusual properties of being both an excellent structural timber for framing, planking, etc., while at the same time being easily worked and finished to a high degree. For this reason, it is also prized for the trim work on boat interiors. Due the the oily nature of the wood, care must be taken to properly prepare the wood before gluing.
