Teak

Tectona Grandis

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 to freshly cut material. Texture uneven, alternatively smooth and coarse because of the wood's ring-porous nature. Grain usually straight. Freshly cut wood can be very variable in colour, with blotches and streaks, but prolonged exposure to light modifies the more extreme variations. Also known as Burmese Teak.
