Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
A while back we first discovered teak wood and all its benefits when we were looking at adding a quick deck option at our old house. We wanted one which we might be able to remove or utilize in an odd shape which is what got us looking at some teak interlocking squares from a local store. Then of course the more green friendly of a family we've gotten to be, we discovered the benefits and other uses teak has.
Being that we are moving into a new home in a few weeks which will actually have both a front porch and back deck we have been looking into various porches and swings for use in either places. So when Teak Closeouts asked me to complete a review of their 48" Teak Bench, we of course said yes.
When this first arrived we knew we would have to set it up ourselves and felt very confident it would be very easy. This solid wood bench shipped in 4 pieces - the arms/legs, back, and seat. It's suggested that it would take approximately 30 minutes to assemble but it honestly took Kevin half that!
My only complaint was that the wood smelled wet and musty. It was definitely an unpleasant smell and it even felt damp sitting on it for the first 24 hours. Overall I feel like this is an extremely sturdy bench which my boys have already put to the test jumping and climbing all over it. I think we like it so much we are looking into the other variety of products they have to offer over at teak closeouts
Available to purchase/Cost: $189 48" Bench
Recommendation: Um, I've got to say I truly think this is the place to go for teak furniture of any kind! Their prices are phenomenal compared to those I've seen on most other sites and in stores and the product that arrived on my door steps is not a cheaply made one!
