dressed vs undressed teak
So I want to make some new trim for our 1979 34' Sabre MKI. The first project is to mill some 5/4 inch quarter round for above the portlights, approximately 40 linear feet is needed or about 20 l.f. per side. I called my local builder supplier of high end wood for a piece of 5/4"x8"x10'. I figured it would be less expensive to mill the quarter round myself, come to my surprise that 10-foot board is $900.00 or at least that's what they qouted me. I couldn't believe it, is there another source for teak out there?
Also, they asked the question if I wanted dressed or undressed teak but I was shocked at the price I forgot to ask the supplier what the difference was between the two. What is the difference between Undressed and dressed teak?
