Speaking of wide plank, here is a single piece of hand adzed teak, 100 x 200 x 2.5 cm. I sometimes find vintage tables with single slab tops...a look on the underside and I may just see something this special.

Gold or funky old  dirty wood? For me these are the holy grail of reclaimed timber/teak here in Indonesia. Extra-wide-plank (40cm and wider), all heart, vintage, and each and everyone covered in a beautiful hand adzed texture. It's amazing to consider but this wood, and all of my old teak & wood stock has been shaped without power tools. A tree is felled by the axe, shaped by the adze, & smoothed by the plane (or left beautifully textured by the adze like these).

At my gudang (storage building/barn) the crew is sizing & sorting my teak timbers - these have all been sourced from old houses in Java. It's all heart & old growth, bought by the piece or whole house. Java teak is one of the best there is.
