1m 'Eton' Grade A Teak Foldable 2 Seater Bench by Liz Frances
Teak is the obvious choice for those who want naturally beautiful and hard-wearing wooden furniture. It possesses inherent protective properties, one of which is a dense, enduring grain which resists rot. It will therefore easily survive even in harsh weather conditions. Other hardwoods simply don't measure up to the tried and tested strength and durability of teak - accept no substitutes. Centuries-old carpentry techniques, such as mortice and tenon joints and wooden dowels, have been used in crafting this furniture to create a truly long-lasting piece. This furniture has been designed for comfort and practicality, inspired by the finest traditions of British craftsmanship.

|Grade A Teak|
This bench has been constructed from Grade A teak, which is rich in natural oils. These oils provide weather resistance and longevity. Grade A teak is from the heart of the teak log, meaning that the grain is denser and tighter. This provides a more pleasing appearance and more even colouring, and also means that the wood is longer-lasting and more resistant to the elements. This wood will age over time, developing the natural silvery patina beloved by teak enthusiasts. This natural process does not affect the teak's inherent weather resistant properties.
|Responsibly Sourced - WWF Global Forest & Trade Network|
You can rest assured that this furniture has been sourced responsibly. The teak used in construction has been sourced under the WWF's GFTN initiative, which aims to eliminate illegal logging and drive improvements in forest management. We have used only the finest timber that has been sourced from managed plantations in Indonesia, one of the largest producers of teak. GFTN, as a WWF-led partnership, links hundreds of companies, communities, NGOs, and entrepreneurs in more than 30 countries around the world. Only mature trees are cut down, which means higher quality wood, and higher quality furniture. We are proud that we fully comply with the new 2013 EU Timber Regulations and that we can trace the provenance of our timber, right along the supply chain back to the plantation.
|2 Seater Foldable Bench|
This bench is wide enough to comfortably seat 2 people, allowing you to relax in the garden with a friend or a loved one. It also is foldable, so that when it is not in use you can store it away easily, ready for the next time you want to use it.
|Mortice and Tenon Joints|
These benches are made using tried and tested manufacturing techniques. For instance, the mortice and tenon joints ensure that the structure is secure and stable, and can withstand stress and regular use.
The dowels on this bench are just one aspect of the high level of craftsmanship in this piece. These dowels support the tenon joint by offering some extra stability. Smoothly finished and secure, the wooden dowels are inconspicuous yet effective.
