Teak

Teak is one of the most common tropical hardwood trees that has managed to become a mainstay of the wood processing industry. Its water-resistant yellowish heartwood that darkens with age is very well suited in outdoor construction, furniture, and boat decks, as well as many indoor applications in flooring, paneling, countertops, furniture and structural columns.
