Teak Wheel Refinish

While it does look good now I'd like to solicit ideas on how to refinish this.


Lots of curvy round spots

Re: Teak Wheel Refinish

Original finish from the manufacture. About 5 years old, maybe more. Came with boat.

I'd guess Cetol like, with a a coat of shiny stuff.

Re: Teak Wheel Refinish

wow...that's gonna suck refinishing that baby! I'm sure you're going to keep it covered?

I did my teak wheel a few years ago, Edson wheel, so the only teak is the wheel itself, spokes are stainless. After stripping & sanding, I applied 3-4 coats of Epifanes Natural Varnish followed by 8-10 coats of Epifanes High Gloss Clear Varnish. It has held up great being covered most of the time, finish is harder that Cetol IMO. Applies similar to Cetol but I think it cures harder.

If it we're me, I'd sell that puppy now to some sucker and get your self something similar to what it have, classic look but not nearly the amount of work.

Cheers,
Shawn

Re: Teak Wheel Refinish

Nah, I've always kind of wanted one like this. You know, hanging on a wall, not at the helm

I was thinking of using a hand rubbed finish instead of brush - spraying it just isn't in my skill or equipment list.
