DETAILS
Originating in South East Asia, Teak (Tectonis grandis) has been described as God's gift to boat builders.  It is impervious to water and can tolerate brutal conditions that no other wood can survive.  The wood is dense and oily to the touch and is described by some as having a slightly musty smell.  The deck of the Titanic and the USS Arizona still have intact decks of Teak!  Teak is ideal for anything from steps, tables, boxes, armoires, fittings, bowls, to turned articles and more!  These will make exceptional bowls and peppermills!  The trees are girdled several years before the tree is felled to allow the sap to flow out enough to lighten the log for river floating.  This species is becoming extremely difficult to obtain in a reliable supply. Of all the woods in the World, Teak is in the top five of the favorites of owner Chris Cook.

Some light figure. Partial live edge. 6" end split, several 2"-4" end checks at numbered end. Small sound knot.
