About Shorea Wood and Linseed Oil
Shorea is possibly the best wood choice for outdoor furniture. Related to Burma teak, this hardwood grows naturally and plentifully in the Pacific Rim countries. Because shorea is dense, heavy, and hard, and contains an abundance of natural oils, it is highly resistant to rot, bug infestation, weather, and marring. Shorea (red lauan) wood will have variations is color - from a red to a yellow cast
The Shorea wood for this item is treated with linseed oil. Linseed oil is not a varnish. The oil soaks into the pores of the wood leaving a shiny (not glossy) surface that shows off the grain of the wood. Linseed oil helps protects the wood from denting by compression and from accelerated deterioration.
After assembly simply wipe the bench with a damp cloth to remove any excess oil that may be remaining. Please note that it is recommended to let your bench sit outside for 2-3 days before sitting on it to let the stain air out and completely dry.
Shorea is strong and weather-resistant enough to be left untreated. If left untreated, each piece will weather to a nice shade of gray. The weathering process will change the color, but the grain will still be smooth. You may treat each piece with linseed oil to prolong weathering. Each piece is durable, classic, and elegant.
An Eco-Friendly Choice: We realize the importance of preserving our environment. Regulations on harvesting shorea wood promote the sustainability of the species and encourage responsible practices for the sake of conservation. Shorea trees are not allowed to be harvested until they reach a certain size, which allows younger trees to grow and reproduce. When you purchase furniture made of shorea wood, you're not only getting a piece of great quality and durability, but you're also contributing to the wise use of natural wood resources.
