20 Board Feet, Giant Squared Teak 6 Thick X 6 Wide X 80 Inches Long Real Teak
TWENTY BOARD FEET IS A TEAK POST THAT MEASURES 80 INCHES LONG X 6 INCHES WIDE X 6 INCHES THICK. THIS IS TRUE TEAK WOOD WITH THE SCIENTIFIC NAME TECTONA GRANDIS! We own teak forests, sawmills, and kilns. We custom cut the best teak wood in the world including quartersawn teak decking, planks, tongue and groove, etc. This listing is for TWENTY board feet one board foot is equal to 144 cubic inches with the board footage calculated by taking the length X the thickness X the width and dividing by 144.
When I recently cut these off to make them shorter they showed no signs of rot or decay. I also have teak posts on the exterior porches of my beach front home. These are holding up beautifully after 22 years on the ocean.
Teak of this size is nearly impossible to find. That is why we cut these to have in stock in our Pennsylvania warehouse.
Beams as thick and wide as this-- 6 inches x 6 inches are extremely rare. These giant, super-long teak squared beams were cut from teak trees that were well-maintained and pruned so that they have straight grain. These beams have centerheart or pith. They are not 100% heartwood--the corners have a little bit of sapwood or white wood in some areas. This is a very small, minimum amount of sapwood/white wood.
