If you want a luxurious teak dining set to put out by your pool or patio, look no further. Teak is the best wood for outdoor furniture. It is very dense, with a high natural oil content that protects it from termites, heat, and water. This makes teak the ideal wood for a dining set next to the swimming pool. This long, solid teak table is 94″ with the extension or 71″ without it. The extension includes a 2″ hole with a removable teak plug for an umbrella shaft. The 8 chairs are sturdy and comfortable. They also stack nicely if you want to put them out of the way or store indoors for the winter. You can buy separate cushions for the chairs, but they are comfortable even without cushions. Very exceptional quality. It would be hard to find a better set at this price.
