The grain is typically straight but sometimes wavy, with a coarse, uneven texture and an oily feel. Teak is considered by many to be the ultimate wood. It is very durable, great to work with, finishes well and is very attractive. In recent years it has become increasing challenging to source due to, understandable and vital, restrictions on how it is harvested. Teak is therefore expensive compared to other durable hardwoods but some would argue that is worth the investment for its superior quality. Often used for high-end furniture for both interior and exterior use, plus for decking and cladding.
