Teak planks are used in the Construction skill to make moderately high level furniture. Each teak plank gives 90 experience points (so if an item uses two teak planks, players will gain 180 Experience).

Teak planks are made by taking teak logs to the sawmill northeast of Varrock and asking the sawmill operator to convert the logs into planks, at the cost of 500 coins per teak plank. Players can send their servant to the sawmill, but it will still cost the 500 coins per plank.
Teak planks are a possible prize from the Squeal of Fortune, they can be won in quantities of 15 and 30 as common and uncommon prizes, respectively.
Teak planks can be used to make a profit. Oak planks' pure profit would be 5 coins less than Teak planks.
Here is the breakdown:
- Cost of Teak log: 101 coins (update).
- Cost to make Teak Plank: 500 coins.
- Teak Plank sells for: 831 coins (update).
- Profit would be approximately: 230 coins per log.
- Profit would be: 6440 coins per trip.
Note: Prices change frequently, so check RuneScape's Grand Exchange Prices for more precise details.
Note: Another way to make profit would be to cut down teaks, get two special logs, which come randomly, and trade those in at the saw mill plus 26 teak logs for 26 planks. That's 13 plank fees per special log. Thus each special log is worth up to 6500 coins.
If players have access to the Balloon transport system they may use it to make Planks quickly. Start at Castle Wars, using the Bank chest, and use the balloon to travel between there and the Varrock Sawmill. Due to weight restrictions, players may only carry about 18 logs to be made into planks at a time (as well as the money to make the planks and the Willow logs for the transport and a Ring of duelling to return to Castle Wars. Players can take the maximum 26 logs per trip by using Weight-reducing equipment.
Note: Familiars can be used on the balloon transport system.
Use in Construction TrainingEdit
Teak planks can be used for Construction training. Pieces of furniture between level 35 and 65 often require teak planks to be built. Teak is expensive though, so buying loads of teak planks to train is uncommon. If teak planks are used, people usually make flat-packs of teak chairs and then eventually, teak dining tables, which is a popular way of levelling Construction. Each teak plank is worth 90 Construction experience, so the maximum experience per inventory available is 2160 for 6 dining tables. This can be doubled to 4320 if using Sacred clay hammers, which is recommended to save 50% of the cost of training.
