At Le Bench we source the highest quality timber from a certified distributor of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) timber products. If you have a particular type of timber in mind that we do not currently stock, let us know and we will do our best to source it for you. All of our timbers are suitable for internal and external use. Together with our marine grade stainless steel frames and fixings your Le Bench furniture will maintain its high level of finish and be long lasting.
We also offer unique finishes to our timbers including several wire brush finishes, sand blasting, ebonised (the real, old fashioned way through burning and cleaning, not fake oils) and scratch finish.
Paid a fortune for Teak furniture? Had it only last 4 or 5 years before it started falling apart? You’re not alone. Did you know that most teak these days is sourced from Indonesia and other Asia pacific countries? This teak is cheaper and does not have the same qualities as genuine Burmese teak.
To ensure the long life of your furniture all our teak is 100% Burmese teak. It is extremely resistant to rotting and flourishes in all environments from coastal to arid.
Burmese teak is the perfect timber to leave untreated to go grey/silver.
RECYCLED TIMBER FURNITURE
We have a variety of recycled and reclaimed timber salvaged from around Sydney, each piece is stripped back raw and tells its own unique story. Most of our recycled material is used in one off pieces. Please contact us for a list of what we currently have in stock.
We like to keep our timbers looking natural and as close to their original appearance as possible. We highly recommend using only a clear coat or leaving your timber raw (Teak and Mahogany only).
All outdoor furniture pieces supplied by Le Bench come pre coated with two coats of transparent water based finish.
