    Default Outdoor garden bench

    I am in the market for a decent teak or cedar garden bench. I remember you purchased one and I believe it was for outside the store. I can't seem to find the post about it now. Can you tell me how it held up and the link to where you purchased it that you previously posted?

    Thanks!

    I bought one for my own home from this company. They only sell direct (no wholesale or dealer accounts) and they are very well made.

    That is it, thank you! I thought you said you were going to keep it outside the store. I still can't find the original post, would you mind sharing again which one you bought? I am going to compare prices to what I can get locally in some of stores that sell similar teak furniture. I don't know that I would save anything once I add in shipping. I am going back an forth between the large scale 4-5 foot benches and the "compact" version of the same size benches, which are actually basically the same size but are heavier and use a beefier wood. I probably don't really "need" the large scale version but I think it would be less likely to blow over in wind, and I do want something that is going to last.

    Oh no, it was never intended for my store, that was just where I had them deliver it, then self-hauled to my house the same day. I would NEVER leave a $ 1,200 teak bench out in the sidewalk unless it was bolt-anchored into the concrete. It would be gone in less than a day. I didn't buy that bench based on savings, I wanted very high quality and durability - the price was not really a factor for my home project.
