The 42-inch square dining table makes a perfect match to either our Chadwick or Classic arm chairs or side chairs. To allow rain to pass through the table top is slatted. With four untappered legs, very strong pre-mounted hardware to attach the legs, and extra support for the table top, this table is very sturdy. If you choose to use an umbrella simply knock out the 2-inch-diameter solid wood market umbrella plug. This table is made of shorea, a teak family wood that is more dense and heavy than teak. Shorea requires no finishing and will not rot when left outdoors where rain and sun will damage other lesser quality woods. Left untreated, shorea will weather to a soft warm shade of gray similar to the weathering of teak. Sturdy mortise and tenon construction provides the highest quality joinery that will last for many years. Original color can be maintained by applying a seasonal coat of teak oil.
