Product Options

We offer this product in Natural Teak or Dark Stain finish. For the Natural Teak, we do not stain the wood; the wood is sanded to smoothness and transparent wood polish and sealer are applied to bring out the natural golden brown colour of teak. For the Dark Stain, a coat of teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker shade. The process for both these finishes is traditional and time consuming, akin to French Polishing, but without the glossiness usually associated with French Polishing. Please note, each batch of teak is unique and actual shade may vary a little from the reference images.
