Tectona Grandis

Also known as Burmese Teak usually has a straight grain. Freshly cut wood can be very variable in colour, but prolonged exposure to light modifies the more extreme variations. Heartwood golden brown, often with dark markings. Sapwood pale yellow and easily distinguished. The wood contains an oleo-resin, which gives it a greasy feel and a distinctive odour.
