  • Natural weathering affects all timber exposed to the elements. Robert Plumb Pty. Ltd. uses New Guinea Rosewood. This timber is graded for outdoor use. New Guinea Rosewood is used on all of our timber furniture due to its proven external durability and dense stable nature. It has similar properties to teak and has a very fine grain. As timber is a natural material, tonal differences among the various elements may occur. Moreover if the products are purchased at different periods the elapsed time and climatic conditions may cause variations in colour and tone and Robert Plumb Pty. Ltd. cannot accept any responsibility. Any product used outdoors should be regularly maintained to extend the life of the product.
