Teak is an amazingly versatile wood that grows in abundance in Burma, India, Thailand and Indonesia.

You’ll find an abundance of natural oils and rubber locked right into the tight grain of the wood. All woods contain oils that protect the tree. Teak, however, can retain these oils and its rubber even after being felled and processed. Because of this, teak has greater naturally weather-resistant properties than just about any other type of wood. When dried to a proper moisture level around 10 percent of its original content the oils and rubber weatherproof the wood. The oils also protect the wood from dry rot, which is a common problem in older wooden furniture.
