This teak outdoor sectional is beautiful. The wood grain, the deep concave curves of the legs, and the clean lines of the top and bottom of the sectional makes this piece feel like a piece you would buy. I love how the top of the sectional has a nice curve on the sides, and the bottom part is just a rounded curve.
The sectional seems to be made to carry your weight. It’s not too heavy, so you can actually go for a stroll without fear of falling off. I love the way it sits on a base that’s a little higher than the rest of the sectional so it doesn’t get in the way when walking.
the top of the sectional and the top of the base of the sectional can be a bit slippery with wet feet, but I don’t know that it would be too much of an issue for me if I were to use this piece for a walk, as the extra padding helps cushion the ground. I would prefer it to be made of wood though, as the wood grain seems to be a bit sharp.
It’s made of teak from India, which is the same kind of hardwood found in most furniture, so its probably not too bad. The sectional and base are made of a harder wood called kauri, which is more naturally slippery. I might just stick to the wood, as I think that it’s a little more sturdy in the long run.
The teak is what I think of when I hear teak. The kauri might be a little better, but I’m not sure. I could be wrong, but I think teak is more durable than kauri.
The whole grain is quite strong and has a lot of depth, which makes it resilient. It seems a bit stiff, so I would probably go with a wood/plastic combo.
Kauri is quite hard, but it is not quite as strong as teak. I think teak will be just fine, but kauri might just be the perfect choice for something like the sectional.
I’ve seen teak outdoor sectionals before but have always thought they were a bit too soft and wouldn’t withstand the wear. There’s a reason most of these sectionsal manufacturers choose teak for its durability.
I agree about the durability. The only wood I could think of for this would be kauri, but I cant imagine the wear and tear being that great. I think the most durable wood I could think of would be teak, but I am not sure I would go for that. I would probably go with oak or walnut and be okay. The same could be said for the sectionals, but I have not seen any teak ones that I really like.
How many sectionsals are you going to build? If we can’t go that far, then we’ll have to build a whole new class of sectionsal. Like a building builder, we’ll have to build a ton of materials, we’ll have to build a lot more. The only thing we can hope for is a few people to come to us and say, “This is not a good idea, you should be able to buy a few sectionsal in a day.
