Stain to match TEAK

Cold is working down to the Cheasapeake Bay and now it's time to setup some indooor Winter Boat projects.
Wanting to color a piece of Okume\Gabbon plywood (Bulkhead replacement) and wondering how to darkin' to the tone of the Oiled Teak in the rest of the boat.
Want to consider sanding oiled Teak and using Sikkins as a top coat on the main wood features, but need to color the Okume.

Plywood already cut and dry fitted. and going to seal with West System Clear.

Should the stain be applied prior to West? Or can I fine a top coat that will darkin a bit?

Any thoughts from anyone?
