Teak Wood

Teak has been among the world's most valuable woods for so many reasons. It's a hard, heavy and strong tropical wood with an oily feel. It's naturally resistant to insects, and it has a distinct, beautiful look.

Bring this resplendent and resilient wood to your backyard

Teak has been a popular wood for centuries. Hearty and durable, Teak naturally resists insects, fungus and decay. What's more, its natural oils give it a unique ability to prevent rust and corrosion when in contact with metal.

A distinct beauty to match its strength

Teak is a tawny golden color with dark brown and gold streaks when freshly cut. Over time, this color lightens as it dries, giving it a regal, aged look. It's this beauty and durability that makes Teak a popular choice for both interior and exterior wood furniture, flooring, paneling, trim and elsewhere.

Finishing Teak

Suitable for interior and exterior furniture, teak is one of the densest woods available. Australian Timber Oil is a good choice for penetrating stains and Cabot Spar Varnish provides a hard protective finish.
