A board foot is the standard measure of hardwoods for sale. A board foot is 12" x 12" x 1". For a piece 8' x 8" x 1" the math is 8' x .66' x 1" = 5.28 board feet x the normal price of $30 for teak, the most expensive readily available exotic hardwood. Some areas may have higher prices.

I just looked at the Cleveland yellow pages - there are dozens of flooring companies in that area but I didn't find teak mentioned anywhere.

Welcome to M.L. Condon Company in New York is a respected marine hardwood supplier but I don't know if they ship. You could email them or call to check.
They are regular advertisers in Woodenboat magazine and have been around for decades.
