Heartwood tends to be light brown, with colour darkening with age. It has lesser oil content and is slightly less durable than African or Burmese teak.
Grain | Texture:
Teak has a coarse texture with medium-sized open pores. The grain tends to be straight, though it can occasionally be wavy or interlocked. Teak also has a slightly oily or greasy feel due to its natural oils.
Teak has been considered by many to be the gold standard for decay resistance, and its heartwood is rated as very durable. Teak is also resistant to termites.
Teak can have a leather-like scent when freshly milled.
