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.)
