Wood has naturally occurring color variation due to grain, forest conditions, age of the wood, etc. We do our best to match parts in sets however there will always be some variance. Please keep in mind that wood ordered over time versus in a complete kit will be impossible for us to match since we have no reference of wood color from previous orders. Wood colors range from blonde/gold to redish/brown.
All of our wood products (aside from "bare" teak) are treated with 5 coats of Captains ZSpar varnish and will require care and maintenance. We have outlined that information for youhere.
