Teak is an oily dense wood that combines function, beauty and quality and is great for outdoor furniture because ...
a) Teak wood's density of grain prevents it from splintering. Hence its use on ships decks in days gone by, and in swimming platforms, rails etc in today's pleasure boats.
b) Teak furniture's natural oils resist rot and decay. Please see below an example of a weathered bench in service for 20+ years as outdoor furniture. One may keep the Golden appearance of new teak patio furniture by oiling the teak every year, or let it weather to a silvery grey finish.
c) Teak is naturally resistant to Salt Water and Salt Spray. Hence its use near sea coasts. No rust, no corrosion. As the examples in pictures below indicate.
Below is a picture of the Charles W. Morgan, now safely kept as a historic landmark at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. Note that the ship was made in New Bedford, MA - one of the harshest environments (snow, salt, cold, whale blubber and oil.)

Our bench arrived today. It is perfect! Thank you for providing this high quality teak bench for our front porch. It completes the look our designer was after for the space. Thanks, J Childs
I am attaching a few photos of our new bathroom with your shower bench and shower bench with arms. We totally gutted our old bathroom in order to redesign the room to be ADA compliant. But, I wanted this new room to be a beautiful spa in addition to being practical. We needed a bench that would fit under the vanity so that a person could sit in front of the sink and mirror, and a bench with arms for the shower so that a person could sit in the shower and have arms to help in standing up. We are pleased with our new room and very pleased with our Goldenteak benches. Next purchase will be your Goldenteak clothes hamper. Thanks for great products and service! CM - 6/1/2014
