FEQ is defined as First European Quality and requires the wood to have no sapwood, knots or wormholes and be 100% heartwood and be Tectona Grandis or “Burmese Teak” rather than many industry “stand in woods” such as Golden Teak, African Teak or Brazilian Teak which are not teak at all and do not share the same resistant properties.
The natural oils in teak make it ideal for high moisture environments and is often used for outdoor or bathroom furniture and accessories like benches and stands. It is great for boat repair because of its natural water repellence.
Once sanded, teak is a delicious smooth feeling wood with gorgeous grain pattern and is the gold standard of wooden furniture.
