Love this lumber
I have bought 100+ bf of both 4/4 and 8/4 teak 3 times over the past couple of years to build outdoor furniture. This is the best quality teak I have found and it is so convenient to have the UPS driver deliver it to my door. Everything I have read says that teak is so much more difficult to work, but, I don't find it any more difficult to work than any other quality, dense hardwood, like white oak or hard maple. I guess if all you have ever worked with is pine, teak is more difficult to work. It does tend to gum up abrasives and wear down your sharp edges more quickly; and, you need to clean all joints with acetone before gluing. I also find it best to use epoxy (system 3 T-33 in the self-mixing applicator tubes) instead of polyurethane glue, only because it is easier to clean up.
