The bench was, for the most part, an afterthought. Many bench companies got their start in the early 1900s by contracting with the piano manufacturers to offer benches in multiple styles that would match the exact finish and leg style of the piano being bought and sold. As the piano would move from owner to owner the bench would not always make the trip, creating a need for the replacement bench manufacturer. The other primary reason for the piano bench manufacturers existence is the fact that the piano bench is typically handled very roughly by many teachers and students alike. The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.

Oil should be reapplied every three months on indoor benches, so it probably will not last that long on outdoor teak benches. Also mildew tends to grow on outdoor benches that are oiled, so steer clear of oil if your bench is an outdoor bench.Cleaning your Bench As with all quality wood furniture, it is necessary to clean your teak bench periodically. The best way to clean a teak bench is with a mixture of detergent, water, and bleach. The mixture should be mostly water, but the bleach and detergent will help ensure that the bench gets clean. Make sure that any brush you use is very soft because a hard brush will damage the soft wood of the bench. Some companies also sell products that are made to clean teak benches, but it is much less expensive to make your own solution just as already described.

The less screws and bolts used the better as it will be more durable. A good option is to look for a bench that has mortise and tenon joinery. o Look at the size of the bench - You have to consider the size of the bench and how many people will be using it before you purchase it. A bench that is four feet will be able to sit one person in comfort and two if they are sitting closer together. A five foot bench is a better seating bench with friends.
