It would seem that this wood has a lot of good qualities. Has anyone made any cranks with this wood?.

I would think that teak would be hard to carve and if I'm correct teak contains a large quantity of oil in it. which makes for a not so durable finish no matter what type of clearcoat you use. Although it would be kinda cool just to make a plain unpainted lure and fish it without any paint job. could pass as a craw bait for sure!!

Teak is used the saltwater marine industry because its nearly impervious to water damage/deterioration.
I know of no finer crank bait artist than yourself to make such a bait. Perhaps you could add dark black eyes and maybe a colored circuit board material (red?) lip.
Nobody else offers such a bait...
You could name it..."prototype" ...that seems to be a very common name right now on the pro circuits
