Teak Wood Veneer

Teak Wood VeneerTeak is commonly used on exterior projects but its also readily found on boats and nautical/marine furniture. Teak was one of the most exploited wood species for nearly thirty years (beginning in the 60's). Because of this, high-end teak logs are exceedingly rare and many exporting countries are imposing very tight restrictions on the sale and felling of teak trees.

If you are looking for large sheets of this species, we also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

Common Name:
  Teak, Burmese Teak

  Golden brown with darker brown veining
Origin:
  India, Burma, Thailand, South east Asia
Hardness:
  Very hard
Texture:
  Coarse
Finishing:
  Readily accepts non-water-based stains and can be top-coated with oil based polyurethane, lacquer, and tung oil. Oil based finishes take longer to dry. Water based finishes are often problematic due to the oily/resinous nature of the wood.
Did You Know:
  Due to the oily nature of teak, we suggest wiping the veneer surface with naphtha before gluing.
