I’ll be building several tables for outdoor (3-season) placement. I live on the water (salty-brackish), so this becomes a consideration.
From my experience both Teak & Jatoba are solid choices – both contain the natural oils and characteristics required for long-term, high-quality outdoor furniture.
Regarding Glues, I’m assuming T3 for non-load-bearing joints, and a West Systems epoxy for load-bearing joints.
Regarding Finishes, my current thoughts are Deft Exterior Poly, over a neutral (tint-base) stain: the intent is to give the Poly something to seal into (though both Deft and Minwax say their Polys can be applied to unfinished furniture).
I would appreciate your thoughts and insight.
