Woodworking properties include medium resistance to cutting tools. Predrilling is required for nailing. Gluing is good on freshly planed or sanded surfaces. Stains well and takes a satisfactory finish, especially an oil finish. Fine machine dust is a skin irritant.
Burmese Teak is used extensively in shipbuilding and boatbuilding for decking, rails, hatches, etc. Other uses include furniture and cabinetmaking, flooring, garden furniture, chemical vats, fume ducts, laboratory benches, plywood, and decorative veneers.
Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
