Teak Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Teak occurs in commercial quantities from India to Vietnam and numerous plantations have been developed within its natural range and in tropical areas of Latin America and Africa, many of which are now producing teakwood.
Teak heartwood varies from yellow-brown to dark golden-brown, eventually turning a rich brown upon exposure to air, with darker, chocolate brown markings. There may be white shiny deposits and a moderate to high colour variation between boards.
The grain of Teak veneer is generally straight, although it can be wavy - it has a coarse uneven texture, and has a distinctly oily feel. Finishing and gluing are satisfactory, although pretreatment may be necessary to ensure good bonding of finishes and glues.
