Reclaimed Teak

St Mawes bench

Reclaimed Teak is becoming increasingly popular.  It is one of the toughest timbers and naturally produces a rustic, natural look. 

Our St Mawes and Chastleton Ranges are made from 70% Reclaimed Teak, using only newly sourced teak for the struts and joints.

All the Reclaimed Teak is authenticated and responsibly sourced from old houses and bridges.  All timbers are kiln dried to obtain a moisture content reading of below 15%.   This makes the timber more suitable to the British climate and avoids unwanted swelling and cracking.  After the timber is dried it is sanded back and “Bottle Polished”, moving glass bottles over the surface of the wood to encourage the timber to release its natural oils and enhance the aged look of the timber.  Finally the Reclaimed Teak is finished by waxing to obtain a lovely honey colour.

Teak will naturally gain a silver/ grey patina, however to maintain the honey colour and prolong the life of the timber generally, we recommend oiling at the end Summer before it starts to change colour. As always we prefer to store the teak tables either wrapped or under cover over the Winter months.
The majority of the range offers a unique design of an integral trough which can be used to create a stunning floral centre piece or entertain in style and fill with ice to chill your drinks. The combination of the classic design and natural teak is a clear customer favourite, enhancing outdoor spaces with statement pieces.
