Whether you're working on furniture, cabinets or anyother project you can dream up, Estate Millwork has the lumber you need. Our premium dimensional lumber is FAS grade hardwood lumber that is kiln dried to 8% moisture content, and machine sanded with 150 grit. Each board is cut to size when ordered, widths range from 1-inches to 12-inches and lengths up to 120-inches.
Teak wood is known for its lovely golden brown color, although when freshly machined, it can sometimes have a variable pattern. Over time, and with exposure to sun and air, the streaks mellow into the signature golden brown appearance for which Teak is so prized.
Because Teak grows in a sandy soil it has a very high naturally occurring silica content, and this silica impregnates the fibers of the wood making it nearly waterproof. As well as making the wood naturally water resistant the wood’s natural oils double as natural insect repellents. Once milled, Teak holds its shape extremely well, and that stability makes it such an attractive wood for yacht builders, as well as for other builders whose materials must perform under harsh conditions and within tight tolerances.
This resin and oil content that makes Teak wood such an outstanding exterior wood is what can also cause the dramatic color variance we see when the wood is freshly planed and cut. Greys, greens, oranges and harsh streaks will show up immediately and that prized honey brown color is gone, while this can alarming but it is important to realize that this will fade with time.
