Eucalyptus Wood Patio Side Table
Eucalyptus Wood Patio Side Table Made from solid wood, this small patio side table folds for the ultimate convenience. Tongue and groove joinery helps to keep the table strong and stable. Comes fully assembled. It's recommended that you cover or store away this table during harsh weather and winter.
Designer advice: Eucalyptus wood is naturally water-, uv- and mildew-resistant and can be left outside in a rainstorm. The design of this table features square cutouts on the tabletop, allowing rain to run through the openings, rather than pooling on top. Use a mild detergent and a soft cloth to clean. To maintain the stained finish of your eucalyptus furniture, use teak oil or refined/boiled linseed oil in the spring and summer.
