Long time Lurker.. who finally actually joined.. This forum has saved my bacon a few time reading other’s experiences. I thank you for that.

Not sure if this is Ok to ask, but can anyone suggest a location where I could purchase Teak at even remotely sane prices? I’m seeing $50/BF… Which if that’s what I have to pay then so be it, but just thought I’d ask for some dealers ANYWHERE Mass, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, Connecticut???

THanks all.

I’d hate to say this to you, but Teak is stupidly expensive (which I’m sure you already know). The least I have seen it for 39 a board foot here in New Jersey. Is there some other wood you can use? Is it for a marine setting, or just outdoor. Does it have to match grain wise? Maybe then somebody could help you.

Hope this helps

I have used Iroko as a teak substitute it is about 1/3 the price. It looks almost identical to teak.

this is an example

Listed at $40/bf at Newport Nautical Timbers in Bristol, RI. Thought I would pass it along in case you weren’t aware of them.

Thanks to ALL replies!! some great info… I would also like to share with the group a place I found via word of mouth that will do around $24 BF!! (under 10” wide) It’s in Tiverton, RI which is very close to quite a few boat builders and ship wrights alike….

@johnstoneb, I’m curious though to try some Iroko in other projects now that you have mentioned this, however, this is for my boat’s galley and want to stay traditional but that piece of work you posted looked fabulous!!

LOVE visits to Downes and Reader…. My 5 year old can literally name damn near every species they have!! Adults look at him as he passes Zebrawood and gets all excited…

Have your say...
