Thread: Teak Outdoor Chair

    Is that what they use on boats, I mean for Teak. I use West to repair fiberglass hulls.

    WEST is best.

    Perhaps. But Titebond III is sort of okay.

    Yes, being a former sailor; sailed for 27 years.. 31' Golden Hind; 37' Amazon round chine steel.

    Lots of teak for looks!!. Used West Marine system on all teaks by cleaning area to be glued with acetone or equivalent. There's a UV additive that one can add to the epoxy mix.

    cheers...

    Note: WEST System epoxy has no relation to west Marine except that it happens to be one of the many products sold by West Marine.

That said, this stuff was not the stuff I have seen in Scand furniture for decades. Lots of boards with knots, one beauty with a nasty worm hole in the middle. Mine is for a project for a sis-in-law, overdue by ages, so it was a must buy.
    WOW! Teak at WW Source in Phoenix is currently $45/bd.ft!

    Hello All, many thanks for your support. As you know that I have used ChiChipate instead of $$$$ Teak for the outdoor armchair chair design. And here it is dedicated to you all:

    You made pretty work of that project. Looks nice. Thanks for sharing - I like the style.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!
