Most of the outdoor furniture made that is not bargain-basement furniture is made from wood. Wood just tends to add an elegant touch to all outdoor furniture that is not found in the furniture constructed from other materials.
The most common wood used for furniture construction is teak. Teak is found in dense monsoon tropical forests in the Southeast Asia region. Teak trees normally have tall trunks and a deciduous leaf pattern, their leaves fall off. Teak is sought after because it produces a timber that is tall and straight. The very nature of teak is it is somewhat weather resistant, which makes it ideal for outdoor furniture. Teak also has oil within the wood which helps provide a sealing coat and makes oiling less important.
Older teak trees are prized because as the tree ages it becomes more suitable for furniture making. It becomes easier to work with and also provides more protection against outside elements and weather.
Teak’s resistance to the weather makes it a perfect choice for outdoor use. The wood in its original state is normally golden which will turn to silver with time. The original wood is really quite stunning and grows softer with age. If you prefer the original color you can restore it by applying special cleaners and applying teak oil.
