Whenever I’m preparing to make a big purchase I can hear my father’s voice in my head reminding me that you get what you pay for. My current project is shopping for some furniture for my new house and I am really partial to teak wood. I inherited my love for teak furniture directly from my father. I remember helping him wash and seal our outdoor teak furniture whenever it was losing its luster. He would brag about how long he had it and that it would still be around after he was gone. Now it’s my turn to own some of my own. I’ve done my research so I know that teak furniture comes in three different grades.
