Re: Anyone make new teak pieces on deck

Don't forget to align the grain on the plug with the grain of the piece you are putting them into.

I just finished construction of new cockpit seats for my boat and hammered in about 65 of these in the process (use a wooden hammer if you have one -- they work great for this type of stuff). Even though I plan on letting the teak for the seats weather, I dipped the plugs in varnish before putting them in so as to get a little extra adhesion. Perhaps it wasn't necessary, but the can of varnish was sitting there. Trimmed them off with a flush cut saw followed by a sharp chisel and then a light sanding.

After buying a dead blow hammer, I never went back to a wood/rawhide hammer. Yea, D, those plugs must be on their way to my house I would guess.
