Beautiful work,,,and wood ! I have quite a bit of teak in my house and I love it.
  If you were to standardize your structure and build it from smaller trees , something like that would sell as outdoor furniture here in California. Wedding chapels, BBQ covers, garden entry's, foyer entry......Just a thought. Export would be easier as it is a manufactured item. Rob

Good thinking Rob. 
some points, first teak is pretty lame as roundwood, just white color, the beautiful heart color would be hidden. second, i think there is already a pretty big market with these things, so it will be low price because of competition. third, i don't have small logs anymore

the big pieces are definitively several times harder to work on, no passing them thru the planer, jointer or tablesaw, even my small column drill won't fit on the beams.

Years ago when I did the business plan for another group, the challenge was to develop enough income from the smaller cull trees to meet cash flow demands to keep going and see the rewards from the larger heartwood, bigger trees. Sounds like you are there.

when i started selling my thinnings in 2014 hindu buyers payed 90$/m3 for small diam teak wood, 13cm diam and up. that was a pretty good price for such small young wood. since 2019 the prices where reduced to half and it's not profitable to harvest such small trees.

good thing is in that time period i passed the small diam logs because of the thinnings i did. now i'm at the third thinning and my trees are 8-14" diam. the small end of the log gives me 3 boards, 1x4, which i sell cheap. still alot better than sell it round.

the plan always was to have some kind of roller band for the infeed of the sawmill, nothing fancy, just manual.
was looking at some used woodworking equipment a guy has stored and these roller tables caught my eye, after some negotiating i bought twice as much as i needed, 8x 3m section, for 430$. the old guy is sitting on 1 Million $ worth of wood woorking machines, electric motors, al kind of gismos, which nobody will buy in Costa Rica and he wouldn't sell me the 20 year old outside stored rollertables for 350$, what i offered.
(he has a maybe 20year old weining 8axle planer moulder there, manual, before electronics, think he wants 50k for it, you need a industrial 3phase connection for that beast) 

still think i got them for a good price, every roller turns freely
My friends pickup wasn't so happy for the 260km ride back home



some progress on the framing front. the ironwood posts, actually pretty workable wood for being 1250kg/m3, that's 78 lb/ft3!!





i'm sure that wood will pop some colors after oiling it!

Nice score on the new junk.  I collect those as well. Americans usually call them gravity conveyors.

Is there a good market for yacht and sailboat decking? I would think that would sell at a premium.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.

there is a market for yacht teak but they want old grown teak, not plantation 20year old wood.

Not much left of the old teak trees (just in Myanmar, i heard) and it's ridiculously expensive

8 axle planer must be a beast indeed! Over here you can purchase old 4, 5 or at most 6 axle planers for reasonable prices. 4 axle moulders goes around 5 k in euros I guess. 
There is a 8 axle moulder for sale somewhere in the netherlands with a total power of 120 kW  :o 18.5 kW and 11 kw axles. That would clean out most generator exhausts I think

WOW this is crazy! Joinery looks great, and if you're gonna build something outdoors out of nice lumber, might as well make it look awesome! Can't say I'm not jealous lol
