Teak wood – elegant and poised .  No matter what the day brings, these feathers remain unruffled.  Teak has long been considered the gold standard for decay resistant wood — its heartwood is very durable.  Perfect for interior cabinets, floors and walls, and also exterior use.  Displaying soft, dark gray streaks throughout a wavy backdrop of yellows and browns.  Our teak comes from sustainable plantations where we know the farmers.  We then hand select our teak lumber to assure a delicate beauty.  We prefer a mix of straight and wavy grains, offering an intriguing, raw look.  Pricing is per board foot.

Teak is one of the most desired lumbers in the world.  It has incredible dimensional stability, high tensile strength properties, easy workability, enviable durability, and superb resistance to decay and rot.  Also, teak's natural oils and tight grain make it very useful in exposed environments, and also make it termite and pest resistant.   It's no wonder that "Teak" is added by many suppliers as a moniker for other woods, similar to the many knockoffs of Mahogany.

Teak is a tropical hardwood tree species.  It comes from a large deciduous tree known as Tectona grandis, native to South and Southeast Asia, mainly Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia.  Teak wood can be used for interior cabinets and flooring, veneers, and exterior construction.

Wood is a product of nature, and therefore no two pieces are alike.  Also, the exact same wood species growing in different locations can result in wildly different looks.  Please stop by or order a sample to confirm this is the wood you are looking for.

Color Range

Teak is naturally dark golden yellow or medium brown, and can turn darker brown with age.

Teak displays moderate color variation.

Stains, oils, and varnish can be added to change the color range.


Teak is very flexible in the finishes that you can apply to it.  With no finish at all, the wood will naturally weather to a pleasing silver gray.  It naturally has a good matte finish.  Stain can be used on teak although it is not needed.  Teak can also be oiled with a finishing agent like linseed or tung oil.  Teak can also be varnished for a high gloss or shiny glow.


Cabinets, interior millwork, interior flooring and walls, and many exterior applications.

83%+ Clear:

We offer Select & Better graded lumber that is at least 83% clear on one side.

Kiln dried:

All of our wood is kiln dried and stored in a protected warehouse.

We store our wood as S4S, which stands for “surfaced on 4 sides.”  The boards have two flat and parallel faces and two flat and parallel edges.  The boards are first surfaced on both faces (S2S) with a planer, and receive a rip on both edges.

Rot Resistance:

Teak has long been considered the gold standard for rot and decay resistance, as it is very durable.  Teak is also resistant to fungi, mildew, and termites, but it is only moderately resistant to powder post beetles and marine borers.


Teak is easy to work.  Despite its natural oils, it glues and finishes well.  The only draw back is it does contain a level of silica (up to 1.4%) which can blunt cutting edges.


Gast committed to using green building materials.  This teak wood is an environmentally friendly solution as it is sustainably harvested.  In the past, Teak consumption raised an environmental concern as rare old-growth teak was disappearing.  However, its popularity has led to growth in sustainable teak production throughout forestry plantations in the tropics.

When materials are made with sustainability in mind, it means we live in a healthier world.
