Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

That all looks pretty straight forward, and shouldn't be a major challenge to reproduce.

Here are a couple of other species you might want to research and consider:

- Ipe (pronounced e-pay.)
- Cumaru.

Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

Wow.. that woodwork doesn't even look bad Abraham!

Teak cleaner (oxalic acid) bleach, scrub brushes. sandpaper, 80 to 220 but I'd finished with 150 and it was smooth enough. then a good wipe and soak with acetone and 3-6 coats of finish.

Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

Its not terrible. In a couple pics you can see where I cleaned the port side. I just used some tide and water. But I have a clorox bleech/tide/tsp mix(as mentioned in This Old Boat) that I am going to use. I have a quarter sheet sander that I believe only goes back and forth and not a true orbital. Will this work fine? I assume so.

Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

I had not heard of the acatone rinse. Is this necessary? I bought a quart of Cetol that I will most likely use.

Yeah, I'm with Denise on this one. Unless the wood has problems we're not seeing (cracks or other failures), then a good cleaning would probably do the trick nicely.

If you decide to go this route, here are a few recommendations:

- Try giving it a good rub down with a white ScotchBrite pad and Barkeeper's Friend cleaner. The B-F cleaner has no abrasive and it's got oxalic acid as a major ingredient. Rinse it well, let it dry and see how it looks.
- If it's still looking a little stained, give a two-part bleach a try (but be careful with it.) Follow the package directions about mixing and neutralizing.

As for finishes, you're sure to get a lot of opinions on everything from leaving it naked to encasing it in many, many layers of varnish.

While not strictly necessary, it's highly recommended.

The difficulty with teak is that it's naturally oily, which is one of the things that makes it a great wood for exterior exposed use.

The acetone step removes the oils on the surface of the wood, and promotes a much better adhesion of the finish to the wood.

BTW: Which flavor of Cetol did you get?

Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

Really the main bad thing is that alot of the bungs and screws are sticking up I assumed cuz of erosion and 40 years of cleaning. I did get the scotchbrite pads and with a laundry soap, bleech, and that tsp or whatever to clean the wood as instructed in "this old boat". I will rinse well and apply the cetol I already purchased. It will be good enough. I'll put my money towards new lifelines. Sooooooo, covered or uncovered in the Great lakes?

Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

I had the same reaction. I can see why your father-in-law thought those would be easy to make, but they just need to be refinished. Are you getting leaks from any of the areas where the wood is? If so, you might consider removing all of the wood, refinishing it, and then rebedding it. Rebedding sounds tough, but it really isn't that bad. Here's a great description of the process:
Re-Bedding Deck Hardware Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at pbase.com

Some love Cetol, some hate it. You'll find that that's true of most of the finishes out there. Find what works for you, or what you want to try, and give it a shot. Honestly, most of the finishes will be fine for your purposes, so don't be afraid to go with one. I would, however, suggest putting something on there. The finish helps cut down on damage from freeze/thaw cycles.
