Teak: Exotic Wood

Burmese Teak is prized for its weather resistance and durability. Teak is used in the boat building industry due to its natural ability to deal with the elements. Teak is a fairly expensive exotic wood. Teak is best used for smaller projects if budget is an issue, or alternative wood can be used. Teak has a uniform brown color and tends to be naturally oily.
