Teak is easy to saw and planing. Depending on the lime and gravel content the tools dulling more or less quickly down. In general, it is advisable to use tools with carbide cutting edges.

The height and diameter of the teak trees are highly dependent on the growing place and soil conditions. Teak trees with a height of 40-45 m, with diameters up to 1.80 to 2.40 m are common. These large trees are free of branches up to 25-27 m.

In general Worldwood prefers a natural seasoning process of teak, which is also the case in most cases. However, in some cases there is no time for a natural seasoning process and we use one of our three kilns. Worldwood ensures that, during seasoning process in one of the drying chambers, no type of wood is mixed with a different type of wood, in order to avoid staining problems. Employees of Worldwood are experienced and qualified to to give the teak the special treatment it deserves.
