Burmese Teak Timber Flooring

Burmese Teak Timber Flooring is the most common solid hardwood timber flooring in Singapore. Its slightly different from the traditional Burmese Teak parquet flooring because it uses bigger pieces of teak flooring. Of course, the price is different.

I did this for my cousin's apartment at Oleania Residences at River Valley Singapore using Burmese Teak Timber Flooring (75mm x 10mm ~ 1 to 3feet) random laying. The top coat is finished with a mixture of matt/glossy of polyurethane varnish.

Burmese teak as compared to Indonesian teak is darker in color, and contains more oil in its wood. The oil acts as a natural water repellent and prevents the teak from rotting and damage from termites. This makes it more expensive and elegance for flooring and furniture.

Live Edge Table with Bench

Live Edge Table with matching bench for my cousin's new apartment at Oleanas Residence River Valley Singapore. 

This is a six seater, which is suitable for small family living in HDB or private apartments in Singapore. The legs are "chopstick" cast iron legs with matt black powder coating for lasting finish.

The thickness is about 2 inch which is sturdy and lighter as compared to those big live edge table. Just in case you needed to create space for the extra guests.

Live edge plank for Bay Window

A friend of mine recently approached me to customise a piece of Suar wood to add some character to her condominium at the Esta located at Marine Parade. 

Well, after placing the plank on the existing concrete bay window, it turned out to be a beauty. No drilling or gluing is required. 

This piece is 2.4m x 1/2m wide with a 1.5inch thickness and lucky it fits the lift as well. :)

Below are some pictures for all to view. Enjoy.
