Of course many people really enjoy the look of weathered teak, so many of these steps will not be necessary if you prefer to enjoy the grey teak. It takes several months for teak to fade from its original light brown color into grey, although this may happen a bit sooner if the bench is an outdoor bench. Just remember that teak will always be durable and resist splitting, even after it begins to have that beautiful grey weathered look.
However, oil is not recommended for outdoor benches. Oil should be reapplied every three months on indoor benches, so it probably will not last that long on outdoor teak benches. Also mildew tends to grow on outdoor benches that are oiled, so steer clear of oil if your bench is an outdoor bench. As with all quality wood furniture, it is necessary to clean your teak bench periodically. The best way to clean a teak bench is with a mixture of detergent, water, and bleach.
These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made. For wood benches, look for one that comes in very few pieces. Try to get a feel for the joints although judging joints on a wood piece is a bit more difficult because it can be hard to see the quality construction. Try sitting on the bench and moving around a little bit. If the bench does not wiggle or creak, then there is a good chance that it is of high quality.
