For Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded to smoothness and transparent wood polish and sealer are applied with a soft cloth to bring out the natural golden brown colour of teak. For Dark Stain, a coat of teak stain is hand applied to give the wood a darker, deeper shade. For Black Finish, the wood is sprayed with an eco friendly water based paint that leaves the grains and patterns visible.
