WTB: Teak for patio chairs, near 01776
#6
  
Got a source for any teak?  (I copied our friends' teak chair and made 8 out of cedar.   Now they want a few made out of teak for themselves).

Need a little 8/4 but mostly 4/4.

Wall lumber has 4/4 and 5/4 Teak. I've been very happy with the lumber I've bought from them.

Hearne Hardwoods has 4/4 and 8/4 but I've never dealt with them, just bookmarked their site.

"73 is the best number because it's the 21st prime number, and it's mirror 37 is the 12th prime number, whose mirror 21 is the product of 7 times 3. Also in binary 73 is 1001001, which is a palindrome." - Dr. Sheldon Cooper

I see that your pretty close to me in 01746.
I would suggest Newport Nautical Timbers, Keiver-Willard, Newburyport, Ma
Boutler Plywood, Sommerville, Ma

Expect to pay north of $18-20/bdft

You may want to hunt up Silver Bali or Angelique as possible substitutes
I would also recommend White Oak...lot less expensive, good rot decay resistance, weathers very nicely

I don't know where you live but I was just at West Penn Hardwood in Hickory, NC. I bought some African Teak called Iroko. The price starts at $5.80 a board ft but they add surcharges for wider stock. I paid $7.80 for mine. The place is huge and they have everything from turning stock to slabs. They had wood I never heard of. 

Good luck.

Never heard of that before.  Very interesting, "real" teak locally can run $30-$40 per board foot.  I don't use it.   Laugh
