BTW, as someone who purchases Teak 3-4 times a year for our shop I can tell you that the Teak available today is just as good as 30-40 years ago. Just don't get the plantation grown stuff from S America.
We also buy a lot of teak and I would say that what is available here is definitly not the same ....It may be a question of who gets the "good stuff", we donít.
