Checking is a term used to describe small cracks that appear on the end grain of the wood. These checking cracks would most likely occur at the ends of the slats, ends of the arms or anywhere where end grain is exposed. This is completely natural and not a cause for concern. These checking cracks will stabilize in the first few weeks of exposure.
Love the teak steamers and table we ordered. Best I have seen so far, and
price can not be matched. Thick wood, beautiful brass hardware. You would
easily pay several hundred dollars more, and then some, for an inferior
product elsewhere. Packaging great, flat, no assembly.
This is the real deal, and best part, a local business contributing to the Lawrence economy, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, now undergoing an revitalization. True American story.
