Funny thing… just the other day I was asking about the price of teak in the forum. About an hour ago I see the teak patio chaise sitting by the dumpster. I dragged it down into my basement and emerged with what you see in photo 1. I didn’t finish it or anything, just planed one side (the top) of the slats before throwing the table together. I used about 60% of the wood, not bad for salvaged lumber. There are 3 cross braces underneath, which I used a treated 2×4, but the rest is all teak. At least I’m pretty sure that’s what it is. My neighbors love it and, as you can see, are already loading it up with potted herbs.
Question.. should I oil this or anything, or is it okay as it is?
Thanks for looking! :)
