Good Things About Teak Wood

Teak wood is the most look for furniture material all over the world. However, the supply of teak wood is not large in several states. Regions that have potential as suppliers of teak wood are Asia, and one of them is Indonesia.


Indonesia has been known as the largest supplier of teak wood in the world and has spread its throughout the world. Teak tree forests in Indonesia are quite large, especially in Java and Sulawesi.

Why is teak wood so popular?

One fact about teak wood that many people don’t know is that teak trees will be harvested approximately 80 years after they are planted and this is also one of the reasons why teak wood furniture is expensive.

Besides having an expensive price, furniture made of teak wood is highly value. With good quality, it has high oil content and making it weather (heat and rain) resistant. It naturally provides resistance to the wood so that it avoids damage caused by moisture, insects and other factors. However, supportive care is still needed so that the furniture is better maintained and remains durable for decades.

The maintenance is quite easy and not complicated, which is also a good consideration when choosing teak wood furniture. It also has a unique,  natural shape and character, and making teak wood furniture a distinctive piece of furniture, especially for rustic and classic themed interiors. That’s why teak furniture is in demand.

It’s going to be a good decision when someone fills their rooms with teak wood furniture, because this is a long-term investment for comfort and aesthetics for those who need this. Do you also like and need teak furniture as your choice?

By diverting this valuable scrap wood from landfills, we reduce waste and give it a second life as functional and aesthetically pleasing materials.

No need to worry having teak furniture

Apart from being durable and easy to shape, another advantage of teak wood furniture is that it is easy to care for. Some other wood that has been turned into furniture usually has to be wiped diligently, kept away from water, and must be varnished at least once a year so that the color remains beautiful.


Teak wood is famous for its good and long-lasting quality. So it’s not surprising that a lot of furniture is made from teak wood, such as chairs, tables and cupboards. Cupboards made from teak wood are excellent because they are resistant to insect attacks, humid environments and weather changes.

Not only iron or glass expands but wood can also expand. You don’t need to worry because teak wood furniture is a material that is stable and consistent in size. So don’t worry if your teak wood furniture is often exposed to steam or heat.

Tectona grandis was first formally described by Carl Linnaeus the Younger in his 1782 work Supplementum Plantarum.

In 1975, Harold Norman Moldenke published new descriptions of four forms of this species in the journal Phytologia.

Moldenke described each form as varying slightly from the type specimen: T. grandis f. canescens is distinguished from the type material by being densely canescent, or covered in hairs, on the underside of the leaf, T. grandis f. pilosula is distinct from the type material in the varying morphology of the leaf veins, T. grandis f. punctata is only hairy on the larger veins on the underside of the leaf, and T. grandis f. tomentella is noted for its dense yellowish tomentose hairs on the lower surface of the leaf.

Removing Water Stains


If your stain is dark-colored or black, it means that the wood itself has been affected, which will take more elbow grease to remove, but with the right ingredients and a little determination, you can remove those pesky water stains from any wood surface. The same is true for getting alcohol stains off wood surfaces like a table or floor.


If someone forgot to use a coaster and placed a glass on top of your wood furniture, leaving a water stain, you don’t have to worry. Although removing water stains from wood can be difficult, the stain doesn’t have to last forever.


With a few everyday ingredients, you can get rid of the rings. There are also a variety of homemade wood cleaner recipes you can use to keep your wood looking shiny and clean even without stains.

Although mango wood is fairly water-resistant, it is advised that you do not clean it by applying water to the surface and removing with a sponge. Wipe down periodically with a slightly damp or dry dust cloth that contains no heavy stitching, in order to avoid scratches.
