Re: How to avoid dark areas when varnishing teak?
If you scraped right down to bare wood, you may have burnished the grain and kept it from soaking the first coat. Best to hit it with some sandpaper and be sure that first coat is highly thinned out. You might even just prime all the bare spots with 50/50 first, followed by a couple of layers of 25%, then go back and sand everything out as even as you can get it, before starting to build.
