I have a split in my teak furniture, is this anything to worry about?
Your teak furniture may develop small cracks/splits as it begins the weathering process and is exposed to its new environment. They call this “checking” . This is nothing to worry about and and is natural with all wood products. The wood is releasing and drawing moisture and will not affect the longevity of your furniture. This is purely a natural characteristic of teak and is completely normal. Over time these usually sort themselves out but if this is bothering you,all you need to do is apply a small amount of wood adhesive on the crack/split and lightly sand down so it fills this in.
