Teak


The heartwood is dark golden–yellow darkening with exposure to brown or dark brown. Sometimes figured with dark markings. Can have a greenish tinge when freshly cut. The timber is dull with an oily feel and has a unique scent when freshly cut. The grain varies from straight to wavy depending on origin. The best teak comes from Burma being generally straight grained and uniformly golden. The texture is coarse and uneven.
