Tables are constructed from the best quality timber from selected trees, where the annual rings are closest together. Each slat is carefully selected when joining the table together. All teak comes from state-controlled teak plantations in Indonesia. The tabletop is constructed around a 1/2"-thick plywood board that has been epoxy-treated twice. The surface consists of 1/8"-thick teak slats with caulking in between. The tabletop is 5/8" thick, not including the raised edging.
