Hey folks! I'm posting here since my power tools are once again unreachable for a while.
I have a stack of boards, likely teak, that were salvaged from benches in an old sailboat. They're about 1/2" thick, width ranging from about 1" to 3.5", and lengths from a few inches to five feet. I'm planning to make one of the boards into a tea chest, so I can stop having a pile of paperboard boxes on my desk.
I haven't decided on joinery yet (likely either splined miters or the "rivet" joints from this article
), but is there anything I need to be particularly aware of working with teak? Obviously it's going to be a lot harder than what I'm used to (pine, poplar, and douglas fir), but is there anything else critical I should know?
