The 220 cm x 100 cm recycled teak table in just a few words
The teak we use for our table comes from the structural timbers of old homes that are being demolished, it is recycled to become a unique piece of furniture with its imperfections, pronounced grain and the nuances typical of vintage teak. Each piece is hand brushed to accentuate the grain and markings of the teak. The table legs are fixed to the tabletop with metal brackets.
This table has been designed to withstand outdoor use: grooved top, stainless steel fittings for assembly, and natural teak. Left as it is, it will turn grey and take on beautiful silvery tones. Alternatively, you can maintain it with linseed oil. The quality of this product also makes it a very beautiful indoor product, for a veranda, a country house or your main dining room. Dimensions of the teak table: Height 78 cm x 100 x 220.
Maintenance of untreated natural teak furniture
Our recycled teak is not treated and unfinished. It has not undergone any protective treatment other than a light water-based dye to uniform the different colors of teak.
It is permeable. Any liquid (wine, soda, etc.) or viscous material (fat, sauce, etc.) will leave a mark in the wood. To reduce the porosity of wood, we advise you to apply our waterproof spray regularly : it just gives you time to wipe the liquid.
For daily maintenance: clean furniture with a slightly damp cloth. In case of small stains, Marseille soap remains the most effective maintenance product. To eliminate a persistent stain (wine, grease), gently sand with fine sandpaper in the direction of the wood thread. In the case of difficult-to-remove marks, bleach renovate the wood effectively but will tend to lighten it. Rinse thoroughly after application and let dry.
It is strongly not advised to apply varnish, wax or coating: recycled teak can sometimes come from a red-tinged species or a rather yellow variety. Any chemical will bring out these different shades and your furniture will no longer have a uniform color.
Cracks and fading are almost inevitable: solid teak comes from hot and humid countries. In our latitudes, where the air is often much drier, wood is still alive. To minimize this phenomenon, keep constant and medium humidity and heat in the room where the furniture is located.
