I think that's more rare than not. It depends where the op is. My local lumberyard has it in stock - Westwind Hardwoods. P J White out west stocks teak as well. In a major city there should be a hardwood supplier, and if they deal with it in reasonable volumes they should have shorts in stock. He doesn't need a piece 8' x 8". At the going price of $30 a board or higher that would be $160.
