Clarice. Bench. November 06th , 2017.
Outdoor benches are typically installed once and not moved for years. Thats why one of the most important criteria when is their solidity and longevity. Benches made of too thin parts are likely to break up after some time of using. Steel benches that are not well treated will rust and untreated wooden benches will rot. A good idea when examining the bench longevity is to check for other benches from the same model that have been used for long time.
The mixture should be mostly water, but the bleach and detergent will help ensure that the bench gets clean. Make sure that any brush you use is very soft because a hard brush will damage the soft wood of the bench. Some companies also sell products that are made to clean teak benches, but it is much less expensive to make your own solution just as already described. Remember that outdoor benches will still show some age, even if you apply protectant year after year, so expect a little bit of color change, no matter what kind of steps you are taking to protect the bench.
Here are the common tasks that may be performed with a work bench at home: wood working, metal working, gardening, electronics repair, art and sculpture work, jewelry work, watch repair, laboratory work, and pipe fitting. Home work benches used for wood works and other heavy-duty tasks may have a more sturdy and large built compared to those used for light tasks, such as jewelry and watch repair jobs. Work benches that are employed in work that demands many implements may have more provisions for easy mounting, storage, and access of tools.
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.
You can match an indoor bench to kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets, wood trim, or just about anything else in your home. You just dont want the bench to look out of place. Another important consideration when thinking about type of wood is durability. Solid wood benches will last a lot longer and take a lot more abuse than benches that are made of MDF, or medium density fiberboard. If you arent sure whether the bench is sold wood or MDF, then just try to pick it up and see how heavy it is.
