Our Teak Furniture has been produced from A grade plantation grown timber only and is kiln-dried to 15% or less moisture content before manufacture.

Why do we take this extra step? Freshly felled teak has about 40% moisture content. Leave it sit in the sunshine for a while and it would probably dry to a 25% moisture content level on its own.

If you make a piece of furniture out of teak with 25% moisture content and put it in the sun, it will probably dry out and crack If you take that same piece of teak wood and put it in kiln oven for two or three weeks you can take the moisture content down to 15% or so.
