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.)

We purchased this Rectangular Extension Table and some Peabody stacking chairs. The table and chairs are both excellent, and went together easily. I had looked around at local retailers for a teak set [we live near the coast and nothing lasts as long as teak in the salty air] and found them all to be high priced and stuffy. Luckily we found Goldenteak. Quality is excellent [even better than that I saw in local retailer display models]. Fit and finish are excellent. I would certainly recommend Goldenteak to anyone. You can get the very highest quality for considerably less, and you get a lifetime warranty.
I had high expectations of your products after reading the online reviews. I am very pleased to tell you that the furniture we received exceeded even my high expectations.
I am a hobbyist woodworker myself, so I appreciate the tight tolerances and solid engineering that went into the design and construction of this seating set. The joinery was properly sized for the piece and precisely machined for a perfect fit. Glue up, even taking time to be careful as well as clamping and cleanup, took less than half a day for five large pieces. I wish my own work were so precise!
In short, this collection is better built and designed than furniture I have seen costing much more. We have gotten compliments on the look and we look forward to enjoying our purchase for many years. I will be coming back to you for all my outdoor pieces in the future. BK, NV.
