PRODUCT 1 - WOOD BASED (TEAK)

V. Ryan 2008

 

Teak is a natural wood, ideal for outside furniture. It contains natural oils that protect it against wet and cold weather. It can also be treated with teak oil giving it more protection against the elements. Teak is expensive although the growth of sustainable teak plantations means that the price will eventually fall and it will be more widely available.  

The teak table folds away very easily. Care must be taken to protect hands and fingers by ensuring that they are away from the moving parts. The brass fittings will not rust or require oiling. The surface of the table can be wiped clean. If stored outside, a coating of teak oil each summer/spring will keep the table in good condition.

 

This table is quite small although it could easily be redesigned so that the table top is larger. Being small it will fit in the boot of a car easily. However, it is not particularly strong and if excess weight is applied it may break/collapse.
