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.
Vinyard chairs are superb quality. Assembly was a breeze. Chair arms are absolutely gorgeous. We Finished with 2 coats of Watco Teak oil. Great value.
OMG.....we just got our Golden Teak table and chairs......they are fabulous! I was a bit worried because the local patio furniture store said you guys couldn't deliver quality for that price. Boy were they WRONG! We absolutely LOVE our new furniture and can't wait to get the cushions. Thank you so much for not being one of those internet companies that doesn't supply quality at a reasonable price. YOU GUYS ARE THE GREATEST!
