Teak is one of the world's most desired hardwoods. Teak's naturally high oil content makes it incredibly durable. Teak resists warping, rotting, termites, and other insects.
Whitecap Teak products are made from kiln dried, fully aged teak wood. To ensure strength and durability; each of our craft man-made products uses traditional assembly techniques, such as dove tail and mortice & tenon joints. Screw fittings are countersunk and plugged. Only waterproof adhesive is used. Each item is hand sanded and hand finished to a rich elegant luster.
Whitecap Teak only uses lumber certified by the government of Thailand as harvested from managed forest in accordance with Thailand's national policies. No other species or origins of wood or veneers are used in our products. Everything is made of solid teak.
Teak can withstand the most extreme weather conditions including salt, sun, snow, and rain. Because of teak's unique properties, it has been the choice of mariners for centuries.
Not only is teak durable, it is beautiful to see and touch. Its intricate grain patterns and color variations make each piece unique unto itself. There are no other hardwoods that can match the soft , warm, silky feel of teak that comes from the rich oil contained in the wood.
