We often had to “hunt” those reclaimed teak to most remote village from other island like sumatra or kalimantan. Most of them were still in good conditions because it has been a natural teak wood to last long and durable against time and severe weather conditions. yes we will eventually run out of resources of raw materials, But leave a teak wood with such a great conditions and let it rot eaten by the nature is somehow feels like a sin when its compare to cutting down the mighty trees.
reclaimed teak wood is pretty hard to work with, Not because its nature of teak wood itself but because they usually contains such an obstacles like nails or other material that planted inside the wood. Much of the time our saw or machine blades is damaged by them. That’s why we need to spend some time to work with those obstacles to work with this wood here in indonesian furniture factory
