Latin name "Tectona Grandis Linn". Teak or Golden Teak is the king of hardwoods and it's one of the world's most valuable timbers, recognized for its durability and stability. Teak is more durable than any other hardwood and has unparalleled rich beauty. Teak can withstand all types of weather. Ancient Burmese and Thai royalty considered teak to be a royal tree. It has been the pillar of the shipbuilding industry for centuries. The decks of the Titanic were covered in Teak, and the wood is as good today as the day she sank on 1912. Teak is also used in the Middle East oil industry as one of the very few timbers that can withstand the punishing heat of the desert and will not readily catch fire. Teak can withstand harsh chemicals, and is resistant to fungi, rot and termites. Unlike other woods, teak does not turn black when in contact with metals. It looks best when applied transparent and light colors...




All wood in the oven for two (2) weeks to a moisture content of 10-12% followed by one (1) week of resting to reabsorb moisture in the air to ~14%. The moisture level is measured by electronic instruments.




Structural hardwood V-grooved minimizes the possibility of a joint separation. Permanently bonded with watertype-1 glue.




Mortise and tenon, glued with exterior Type-1 waterproof glue. Because wood tends to warp when it becomes damp, we make vertical rails from two separate pieces of wood, then laminating them together lengthwise, with the grain running in opposite directions. The same is done with the stiles. Then when moisture penetrates the door, the laminated pieces tend to bow in opposite directions, negating the warping effect.




Molding around lites and panels. Certain designs have recessed molding.




All panels are end sealed with under coat paint before the door is assembled to minimize shrinking and swelling.



Authentic hand carving by best Thailands craftsmen. No routers, no machine tools are used. Over 4,000 carving styles available for doors frames casing and lintels in many categories such as Americana, animals, architectural, Asian, business, Disney, dragons, mythology, nautical, wildlife and much more...
