Rings End stocks Teak boards from J. Gibson McIlvain Company in 4/4" thicknesses. They are one of the largest suppliers of old growth FEQ (First European Quality) Teak in the country. Teak lumber is extremely durable and stable. Teak has a very high naturally occurring silica content from the sandy soil in which it grows, and this silica impregnates the fibers of the wood, making it nearly waterproof.

Ship and boatbuilding, veneer, furniture, exterior construction, carving, turnings, and other small wood objects. With its superb stability, good strength properties, easy workability—and most of all, its outstanding resistance to decay and rot—it’s no wonder that Teak ranks among the most desired lumbers in the world. Easy to work with nearly all regards. Despite its natural oils, Teak usually glues and finishes well, though in some instances it may be necessary to wipe the surface of the wood with a solvent prior to gluing/finishing to reduce the natural oils on the surface of the wood.
