Topic tags/keywords: teak question

I know that most of you have probably seen the bracelets with the initials WWJD, and I have a dilemma. In my last forum post, I asked about the strength of teak, and somebody pointed out that using teak on a set of Adirondack chairs seemed a waste of teak (my wife agreed). So What Would Lumber Jocks Do? I have 70 board ft of Costa Rican Plantation Teak, mostly 4/4 (will need some surfacing) with varying widths from 4-6 inches, lengths up to about 9 ft. What would you build?

Something really comfortable that I want to last for a long, long time! Adirondack chairs really rock, but design in an adjustable backrest, table and footrest for the ultimate chair. There might even be an extra area there for that big old patio umbrella. You might also want to wire in a remote-controlled cattleprod to a couple of the seat screws for those individuals who refuse to give up your chair!

I haven’t quite learned how to picture quantities of board feet in my head just yet. But if I had enough, I’d be thinking about a sectional couch like this one. Maybe with a matching table or two.
