Some of the best looking and most durable furniture is made from Redwood. It has a chemical inside the pores that makes it weather, insect and rot-resistant. Redwood will last far longer than any other type of wood when exposed to the elements. It's perfect for almost any outdoor application but can also be used on the interior of a home. The tight, straight grain makes it perfect for Adirondack-style chairs, picnic tables, crafts and slab wood table tops, fireplace mantles and more.
