Leaves Kelvin to find wood (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

teak

Here is my best explanation:

'wood' is the definition.

(teak is a kind of wood)

'leaves kelvin' is the subsidiary indication.

'leaves' becomes 'tea'.

'kelvin' becomes 'k' ('K' can be a synonym of 'kelvin').

'tea'+'k'='teak'

'to find' is the link.

(Other definitions for teak that I've seen before include "Hard strong wood", "Durable hard wood", "Valuable, dense wood", "Indian hardwood", "A SE Asian hardwood", "Heavy wood of a tall evergreen Asian tree", "E. Indies hardwood", "Hard durable timber", "Strong heavy wood of an Asian tree" and "Type of wood".)
