I need to make a piece of office furniture to match a teak desk. However, I don’t want to use teak. I’ve looked at several domestic hardwoods to find one that has a grain pattern that resembles that of teak. I can match the color tones with dye and stain. The hardwood that I’ve seen that comes closest to teak’s grain pattern is hickory. Is this a good wood to meet my needs, or is there a better selection to use? If so, what would be the approach to matching it to teak?
