Teak, common name for a tall,
deciduous timber tree, of the verbena family. The tree, which attains a height
of about 30 m (about 100 ft), is native to India, Myanmar and the Malay
Archipelago and is cultivated in the Philippine Islands and Java.
The bluish to white flowers are arranged
in terminal panicles, or clusters. The fruit is a drupe.
Because of its durability and strength,
teakwood is used throughout the world as lumber in shipbuilding and the
construction of furniture; outdoor teak furniture or garden products. Teak has
been known to resist the attacks of insects and the corrosive effects of weather
for hundreds of years. Substitutes for teak, which have been under cultivation
because of the increasing demand, are loosely termed teaks. African teak, or
African oak, is a hardwood tree of the spurge family.
The teak tree belongs to the family Verbenaceae. It is classified as Tectona
grandis. The African teak, or African oak, is classified as Oldfieldia africana.
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.
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
