I’m making some outdoor deck chairs. I’ve narrowed the selection to mahogony, white oak and teak. White oak and mahogony are similar in cost and teak is nearly twice the price. I’d like something that won’t require a lot of maintenance and will likely finish with an oil, rather than paint.
I’d appreciate your thoughts on using mahogony or white oak. How well do you think they’d weather? Is one any better than the other?
For the price of the teak wood, it’d be cheaper to buy the chairs instead of make them, sad to say.
Thanks for your thoughts.
