Teak Furniture is classic in its use and design, and timeless in its
attractiveness. Trends may come and go, but Premium Teak Furniture is always
desirable. Premium Teak Furniture will last for decades with minimal
maintenance, and still be in style.
Premium Teak Furniture starts with the best wood. Teak
Wood is extremely highly rated because of its tight grain which eliminates
splinters. Teak wood also has a high oil content which prevents it from
drying out and getting brittle. The oils and silica in teak are natural pest
Premium Teak Furniture also uses thick timber sections
in its designs. Furniture Legs are thick, table tops are thick.
|Thick Table Tops are standard in
Goldenteak's Premium Teak Furniture
||Legs for Teak Tables and other Premium Teak Furniture are
substantial in size.
In Premium Teak there is no
in the long sections of benches, or chair legs or curved
benches. Fingerjointing uses smaller lengths of wood fixed to each other to
make a longer section. The finger joints are the weak points. Of course
finger jointed wood is much cheaper - no longer Premium.
Furniture is usually available with NO finish.

||Fingerjointing - well hidden in most cases
Some companies will
advertise that the furniture comes with an oil stain (or melamine finish)
for its protection. This is done purely to color the poor sections of the
wood to the same color as good teak wood and pass it off as Grade A Teak
Wood (see below).
Even within Teak Wood there are grades of wood
depending on where the wood comes from in the tree and the age of the tree.
Premium Teak Furniture is made with Grade A Teak Wood.
Grade A teak wood
comes from the heart of a tree, and has very few knots and discolorations.
Sap wood is from the outside of a tree and is white or much lighter and has
knots. The transition area where there is brown and lighter wood is called
Grade B or C wood. Grade B or C wood is not as dense, not as strong or long
|Grade A Teak Wood with no fingerjoints
||Grade C and B Teak Wood
Grade A Teak Wood is very expensive. To make it stable Teak
Wood is kiln dried
to a low moisture content and then allowed to rest
(settle). Once this is done, the wood will virtually never warp or crack.
Premium Teak Furniture couples Grade A Teak Wood with excellent
Mortise and Tenon Joinery with dowels is used when
possible. Screw Joints get loose over time. Solid Brass or Stainless Steel is used for fittings. Strength or
weight bearing joints could use galvanized steel bolts, if possible encased
with blind dowels.
Premium Teak Furniture is also made to drawings,
using machines and jigs and fixtures
|Mortise and Tenon Joint with Hole for Dowel
||Screws are covered with blind dowels in premium manufacturing
(not cottage industry made). This
ensures that all joints fit tight, that the pieces can be interchangeable.
This also allows manufacturers like Goldenteak to ship the product flat pack
assembled. The joints will fit well enough that custom
joinery is not required for each piece. Generally product that ships fully
assembled is either easy to ship assembled (folding, stacking etc.) or is
poorly made and needs to be assembled by an expert craftsman to "make it
fit" during the assembly process.
Finally, all fittings
used in Premium Teak Furniture are Solid Polished Brass or Stainless Stee
Both these materials resist corrosion compared to just steel or aluminum.
Teak Furniture can be timeless. Premium Teak Patio Furniture is a good
investment. It will never go out of style - especially if you get premium
quality in wood and manufacture at a reasonable price.
