The teak table - practical and decorative furniture
Today we talk about teak table - a great accessory for your home.
Native to Asia, in a perimeter including Burma, Thailand, Laos, India, Malaysia, teak wood has spread over the centuries. Today it is a material used in different industries such as boating and furniture manufacturing.
Teak (Tectona Grandis) is a tropical tree of the Verbenaceae family. It is a precious wood whose color varies between bronze and beige. Teak contains a natural oleoresin that makes it extremely weather resistant.
On the technical side, it is easy to work. It can be cut and sanded without problem. In addition, thanks to its stability, it oxidizes, evolves in time sometimes taking a gray silver tone, but does not destroy itself.
Teak is extremely stable, half heavy and non-slip when wet. The oleoresin containing it protects from moisture by making it waterproof. Exposed outside it becomes gray. In indoor use, the teak takes on a golden brown hue.
If you like the gray hue of teak, let it evolve naturally. However, it must be cleaned from time to time to remove microorganisms or dirt. If you want to regain its original color it must be renovated regularly. Brushing with soapy water is enough.
As for the protection, teak oil can be used to impregnate the pores of the wood and thus to regenerate the oleoresin which tends to disappear on the periphery. This oil has an anti-UV which forms a surface veil and slows the oxidation of teak.
It's important to know that you should not rub your teak with a hard brush. Since it is a medium hardwood, it consists of two distinct growth zones: hard and soft. Softwood wears faster than hardwood and teak ages faster.
In short, the teak is maintained according to its destination (for interior or exterior) and its finish. Each of these finishes defines a color and style of furniture.
- The rough finish: the teak has a clear color and a matte appearance, it is very trendy. He makes each piece of furniture a unique piece.
- The polished finish: teak has a color similar to raw natural teak. It gives the furniture a charm and elegance.
- The oiled finish: it increases the natural pigment of wood. Its color is golden satin. In oiled finish the more oil you spend, the darker the wood gets.
