The Beauty of Meranti Wood
Meranti (or Miranti) is a tropical hardwood indigenous to the Pacific Rim countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Burma. It grows naturally and is a plentiful hardwood frequently used for outdoor furniture. Like teak, Meranti is dense and has a high moisture content (about 12 percent). These natural oils make it a durable wood that is rot- and moisture-resistant.
Caring for your furniture and obtaining the look you desire.
The Mahogany Adirondack Chair is constructed of Dark Red Meranti Variety Mahogany. Meranti Mahogany is a tropical hardwood harvested under strict government control allocating reforestation. It is very durable, insect resistant and rot resistant. As with all wood it is a living material and will continue to respond to climate conditions even after being made into a piece of furniture. It is for this reason there are many steps that can be taken to obtain the desired look you want out of your furniture.
Rustic look: If you leave your Mahogany Adirondack Chair outdoors and unprotected from the elements it will weather to a light silvery gray. As with any wood left unprotected you may notice some surface checking and raised grain as it ages. This is normal and doesnt affect the structural integrity of your furniture. Recommended maintenance while achieving the rustic look is to periodically wash your furniture using a mix of 10% bleach and water to remove dust, dirt or stains that might present itself onto your furniture.
Maintaining the natural color: The Mahogany Adirondack Chair comes with a boiled linseed oil finish. If you prefer to maintain the natural beauty of the Mahogany wood enhanced by the Boiled Linseed Oil finish we recommend a periodic maintenance application of Boiled linseed oil. Boiled Linseed Oil, Teak Oil or name brand deck water proofing containing UV protection are suitable finishes. Apply using a multi-purpose spray bottle and wipe off excess oil with a cloth. Applying the oil will ensure the furniture is protected from color fading UV rays and its appearance maintained.
A periodic application is recommended as weather conditions indicate for your area.
Note: We like to remind you to please read all instructions on the label of the oil you use and follow proper procedures for discarding rags.
Polyurethane finish: Polyurethane can be used, however, it is only recommended if your furniture is not going to be placed in direct sunlight. Polyurethane dries hard on top of the surface of the wood (like paint) instead of soaking into the wood such as Boiled Linseed or Teak Oil. If placed in direct sunlight a polyurethane finish may crack and chip.
Painting your furniture: The Mahogany Adirondack Chair comes with a Boiled Linseed Oil finish. However, you can still choose to paint the furniture if you desire. If you choose to paint the furniture it is recommended that you first apply an oil based primer. Use of paint should be of a high grade exterior paint.
