I am stripping the deck of my shearwater hybrid. I am using Paulownia and I was thinking about putting some teak in the mix. Not alot, just for looks. The teak is close to 25-30 years old. I have a bunch 3/4" x 3/4" rips, stored in a garage attic or in my shop.
I just thought it would look good with what I am doing. I feel the teak is plenty cured and any oil that may have been in it is not as active as any new wood. I have some black walnut I could use, but the 3/4" teak rips would be perfect. Not at all concerned with weight.
