wood tub surround


I have a cast iron kohler tea for two tub, i have just framed the tub and im done ready to cover it. I had planned to tile it, 1/4 inch ply then 1/4 in hari, but i was thinking about using a wood. can anyone advise me on a wood surround. How $$$$ is teak. surround is 4 1/2 wide and is 69 x 32 (tub is 60 plus 4 1/2each side) any advice

If you want to know how expensive teak is, price out a local source and see if it's in your budget.
What is 1/4" in hari?

The combination of 1/4" ply and 1/4" hardibacker is inadequate backing for tile or stone. You need 1/2" backer for walls.
