R and D process to utilize this bark I start from the year 2015 .. to find the best formulation, knowing the constraints and solving it in the utilization of the bark as a visual display for furniture .. ensuring its endurance is also how to apply it in furniture. Marginal naming is a reflection of the bark itself, which in my observation, part of the (Teak) tree that has not been utilized yet and has no good economic value is the outer skin (bark) .. Marginal also represents the peeler of the bark at Perhutani TPK. I hope so much, if the application of bark becomes furniture will be interested in the market and many business actors and furniture designers make use of it, automatic bark (bark) is to have economic value, and also significantly improve the lives of Peelers.
