Looking good, Rick!

A little while back you brought up the subject of teak and the question of a suitable (less expensive) substitute. My most recent Woodshop News had a spotlight on teak(Tectona Grandis, or Burmese teak), mentioning pricing between $7 and $30/bf for 4/4 stock. The article went on to say that iroko (Milicia excelsa) is a wood that has similar properties to teak and is about 1/3 the price of plantation teak. It is sometimes marketed as African teak, but it isn't considered a true teak.

Something to file away for later.

Thanks Hank

I'll stop in the local wood butcher shoppe and see what they have. Probably won't need a whole lot to make a swim platform.

Most everything else will be made with white oak, furniture framing etc. Plentiful and cheap around here.

Rain soaked day, shed is flooded, AGAIN! Fark! :oops:

Cheers
Yours Aye! Rick

You put a dog out and it runs around a little and comes back and says "What now, boss? The ball? The park? A walk? Yay!" You put the cat out and it doesn't even look back. They don't dwell on the past. They're so over it.

I look at every one of those You Tube channels you mentioned. I'm especially fond of the Tally-Ho rebuild. Salt and Tar, it turns out, are not too far from me and I may just visit them.

You you might want embed those in your blog to keep the traffic focused there. It will help folks see the historical context easier. Still upload the vids to you tube, but embed the player in the blog allowing you to send that link vs youtube link.
