teak lumber

does anyone know of a source for teak? our recently purchaced cat.27 needs the boards which run under the traveler and over the companionway hatch and foward toward the mast are pretty ratty. they are 1-1/2" thick x 3-1/2" wide and 6ft. long. we would like to find another supplier to compare to our one and only local seller. i know teak is outrageous, but would still like to comparison shop.my search on-line have only led to businesses who sell by the "car-load".i have 30+yrs. of wood working exp. they are a snap to make. just need to get the raw material---thanks, dave57

teak lumber

Check out a wood called Afromosia...it has the qualities of teak...it is beautiful like teak...but not on the endangered list so the cost is much less. I have companionway boards made from this and have been very pleased with them for several years.

Dave, dont know where you are ,but here in Wilm,NC we have a great place called Anchor Hardwoods. They sell every kind of exoctic wood, plus they will cut it or plane it however you want. I would imagine you would have a similiar type of place that sold hardwoods. If not let me know and I will get the number for you.-thomas

teak lumber

i recently purchased teak for a project and for a rough cut 5/4 x 6 it was $14.60 a foot really nice wood. at this price you have to measure twice and cut once.

Or consider PlasTeak, a real plastic teak made from recycled milk cartons. Main advantage is maintenance free. Main disadvantage is color, they may not have want you want. I had them cut me 3/4" x 8'' strips for trim on the cabin sides. I chose a lighter color. Now I need to replace the varnished teak handrails which are much darker than the trim strips.

teak lumber

A couple of years ago I needed to replace some teak on my 1978 C30. I contacted Catalina through the "contact us" section of their website and they put me onto the outfit that produces their trim. I was able to get an exact duplicate. Why not give it a try.

teak lumber

In the winter, when Lake Michigan gets cold and firm, I do a little woodworking. I am able to buy teak at both stores I go to for other hardwood lumber. Many mail order hardwood suppliers also carry it. Price varies, but I have seen it at $17.50 a board foot, and even $20. Mighty precious stuff.

teak lumber

Around the Southern California area I found a place called Ganahl Lumber (several stores) that had some erally nice stuff at about $12.50/bd.ft. I even shipped some to Hawaii, where my boat is, only to find a place in Honolulu that has it for $13.00 - even 8/4!

teak lumber

Since you are in the Pacific NW, you might try PJ White Hardwoods in Vancouver (BC) http://www.pjwhitehardwoods.com they sell Burmese Teak in various lengths and thickesses. Prices are in Canadian of course, and are between $16 and $20 (Cdn) per board foot. Might be worth the drive. Send me an email directly if you are interested in instructions on specifically dealing with them.
