Wooden furniture


Recommended Posts

I was reading another thread and i got interested in wooden chairs. After looking around, i saw that teak and rosewood are the preferred materials. However, i noticed a lot of adverts did not state the name of the wood and only gave a generic "real wood" or made of 1 or 2 pieces. These models are about half the price of teak.

What do you thing these no name chairs are made of and are they worth buying?

worth purchasing? yes, I would say - have enjoyed some myself

 

(note, teak is a very expensive material nowadays)

bought quite a few teak pieces about 12 years ago, prices were OK then,

that was teak imported from Burma

 

there are some furniture factories not far from BKK (if you are based there), easy week-end trip,

in the vallyes going SOUTH towards Trat and Chantaburi from the west-east highway between BKK and Aran

there are bunches of furniture producers

go look see

We bought the same type 15 years ago along with coffee table armchairs and small side tables.

Solid as a rock nothing eating them.

Ours had cushion covers partly to back and a full cushion for seating.

They are definitely made of wood, probably green or not well dried, often with included woodworm. One of ours had worm another didn’t.
 

As to worth buying, it depends on the price and included wildlife.
