selecting outdoor wood furniture, the quality of the wood is
extremely important. Teak speaks for itself,
as it is widely recognized as the best wood for outdoor
furniture. Because of its weather friendly
properties, woodworkers have long chosen Teak for crafting long
lasting, low maintenance outdoor furniture.
There is nothing finer.

Lesser known, but having
many of the same fine qualities as Teak, is a tropical hardwood
called Shorea. Shorea is very hard and
dense, and is rich in oil, making it stand up beautifully to the
sun, snow, and rain. Although Shorea is not
as refined and buttery as teak, it is a fine alternative, and it
is priced to offer the outdoor enthusiast very affordable
outdoor furnishings, with approximately the same outdoor life
span as Teak.

The gently fragrant oils in cedar make it one of the
most decay resistant woods available, as well as
increasing its resistance to warping and splintering.
Cedar, left in its unfinished state, will gently age to
a lustrous silver grey, the perfect hue to accent your
patio or lawn or to coordinate with indoor furnishings.
