How is recycled teak wood made?
As mentioned earlier, reclaimed teak wood is made from used material. However, not all teak wood is suitable for reuse. Therefore, a rigorous selection process is carried out. During this process, teak beams and planks are carefully chosen in the right length, width, and thickness for the intended final product. Subsequently, the teak wood is completely sanded down and stripped of any nails, screws, and large, conspicuous knots, so that it looks like new again.
Any small holes in the wood are filled with teak filler pieces. These are firmly glued and then sanded multiple times to seamlessly blend in with the rest of the material. Because these filler pieces are processed with great care, they do not create any weak spots in the wood—neither now nor in the future.
Recycled teak wood is thus just as strong as new teak, but it carries a bit more character. The filler pieces make each item 100% unique. They tell a story about the past without compromising on the future.
