There are so many different types of wood that can be used to create picnic tables, pub benches, rocking chairs and coffee tables. Some companies insist on using cedar. Some swear by acacia, while others will opt for shorea, teak or oak.

At MG Timber, we pride ourselves on using the finest Swedish redwood – and here are FIVE reasons why.

  1. Redwood is perfect for outdoor garden furniture

Redwood is the gold standard when it comes to creating outdoor wooden furniture that is designed to last. Swedish redwood is naturally resistant to moisture, making it ideal for picnic benches, outdoor dining sets and garden furniture. It also looks incredible and feels super smooth too.

  1. Redwood is super resilient

Although Swedish redwood is a softwood, it remains one of the toughest materials used in the construction of benches and tables. Capable of withstanding large amounts of weight, our pub benches and picnic tables will still be standing strong after years of constant use.

  1. Redwood is resistant to decay and insects

Our Swedish redwood is naturally resistant to insects, making it the perfect material for outdoor projects. You can buy our products safe in the knowledge that the likelihood of them succumbing to decay is slim to none.

  1. Your furniture will boast an attractive grain and finish

Swedish redwood looks incredible. It boasts an attractive grain and can take paint and varnish, so your finishing options are endless. Once you buy one of our products, you can style it however you feel fit. You can also rest assured that our redwood is furniture grade, not construction grade.

  1. Pound for pound, redwood is the best choice

Swedish redwood is more expensive than your alternative options, but if you are going to splash out on a long-term investment you want something that will stand the test of time. Our redwood products will do just that. Because they will not suffer from decay, our wooden garden furniture will remain a part of your outdoor area for as long as you want it to be. Pound for pound, Swedish redwood is definitely one of the best options available.
