dear forum members

I have a lot of recovered Burmese teak for sale with beautiful figuring (as opposed to the boring, ugly Indonesian teak which is the only kind available new today). It came out of a lab and is in excellent condition. 30mm thick and up to 12" long planks some of which are up to 900mm wide jointed boards.There are no drawing pins or anything else stuck in it and would easily leave 28mm thick planks after being through a thicknesser to tidy it up. This lot is ideal for a boat or yacht restoration job. Please contact me for further info and location.

Hi Sara

This is definetly teak. It is oily to touch and the lab is at least 30 or 35 year old as the property manager for the owner told me when I met him there. The lab was built in the days when councils had too mch money and splashed it about like confetti! I have been a professional woodworker for over 20 years and my mate who helpd me is a lecturer in furniture design as well as a boat owner also confirmed it as teak.
You obviously didnt design this lab. This is the second lab I have cleared and the last one was a school and the science rooms also had teak benches.

Hi Bob
The length of the boards is actually in feet rather than inches.
I hit the wrong button on the keyboard.
Having now used a tape measure the longest boards are 10' 2" of which I have 4 and they are about 500mm wide and 28mm thick. The rest of them are 600mm wide and 27mm thick. There are approx 10 of them and they are about 8' long
All of them are in good nick with a few screw holes on one side and some of the boards have bits cut out for sinks/taps etc Hope this answers your query ok

I'm posting this just in case anyone looking to buy teak finds this old For Sale post.

What acewoodturner is selling is NOT teak, it is Iroko and Luan.

I spent several hundred with him and, despite assurances a refund was coming, I am still waiting for it. This is after offering to provide any proof required that what he sent was Iroko and Luan.

BEWARE!

Oddly, your desciption matches the lab benches I salvaged from a University lab some years ago, except that the benches were all iroko.
