About Indonesian Living Room Furniture & Dining Room Furniture Made of Teak
The Teak Wood Tree
Teak Wood is a very dense hardwood that has extremely high oil and wax content which makes it a favorable choice for both indoor and outdoor use. The wood is naturally resistant to rot or degradation caused by fungal decay. It contains an essential oil that resists water and prevents the rusting of iron, while its heartwood is resistant to termites and other insects.
The common Teak Wood Tree (“Tectona Grandis”) is a tall tree which is widely cultivated in tropical areas (e.g. Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand). Teak wood is moderately hard, easily worked and processed and very durable; beams known to be over 1,000 years old are still functional. The tree sometimes grows to a height of 150 feet (46 meters), and the leaves often grow 2 feet (61 centimeters) long and 1 1/2 feet (46 centimeters) wide. They yield a purple dye and are also used for thatch and for wrapping material.
