No wood because there's none on deck now... and have never really been a fan of the "silvered" teak look.
Thanks, Izzy, for the comments on UHMW - most white tables available at the various marine outlets call them "poly" but that's not particularly helpful since there so many polyxxxxxx varieties available. Right now I'm leaning towards the "cutting board" type of material..(HD polyethylene).. see how that goes.
