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.)

10/27/2015 - Dear Goldenteak: The pair of rockers arrived strapped on a pallet but the truck driver very kindly managed to get the whole thing to my front door via my horseshoe gravel drive on his movable lift! Dismantling all the pieces of the shipment and getting them to the assembly area was easier than I thought it would be for this 66 year old woman and her trusty dolly. Anyway, the real joy was how easily the chair assembly was. I had them assembled in no time and was rocking away on my covered porch within a couple of hours.
I finally have a comfy and sunless spot (at least most of the day as you will see from the photos) to read and look over the desert without constantly dealing with our brutal sun. Thanks to Goldenteak for yet another fine product.
I am now wishing I had bought a small teak table to place between the two rockers for drinking glasses, to put down your book, etc... Thanks again. JJT, Tuscon, AZ (Teak Carolina Rocker TCR from Goldenteak) See Customer Photo Here
