Teak Wood : A tall deciduous tree (Tectona Grandis) of the family Verbenaceae (Verbena Family), native to India, Burma and Malaysia but now widely cultivated in other tropical areas. Teakwood is moderately hard, easily worked, extremely durable; beams said to over 1000 years old are still functional. The wood contains an essential that resists the action of water and prevents the rusting of iron. The Teakwood is resistant to termites. Teak is superior to all other woods for ship building and is also used for furniture, flooring and general construction.
We often refer to teak as a "strong" wood that is ideal for making furniture. Apart from its strength, teak has many other properties like natural repel against aging, damage and weathering, which makes it better than other woods.
