Teak (Tectona grandis) is the most stable wood in the world. Both durable
and beautiful, teak is used in the finest outdoor furniture, in high-end
flooring, and in luxury ship construction. In industrial application teak is similar in hardness to oak but carries far greater character and grain. Teak is impregnated with natural oils that protect the wood from time and the
elements. This grand hardwood has been used for centuries in temples in Asia, and in modern times it has become a key material in the best yachts and on the decks of warships and submarines.
