Check out this. I know its not teak, but its a simple solution. It removes easily for work, it pivots so you can work on the wires without removing them, it can fully enclose you stereo to protect it against dust and moisture. We leave the faceplate open when we use it, also have a remote. When we leave the boat or not in use we close the smoked front faceplate. Ours is at/ above our Nav station also

Here's a pic of a nav station like ours, though it's not our boat. I'm enclosing the space above the shelf, but only about half of it--the half that's over the nav desk.

It may a bit much advanced to make but a tambor would work nice for an enclosure like that. it's a roll up thingy made of slats.. like you see on big old roll top desks. they can be bought from places like Rockler.com but not in teak i'm sure.

|bljones||SD, I'd be worried about stainless if it was an exterior app, or an interior app constantly exposed to air. Neither is the case here.|

try looking at jegs, the auto parts place they have a wide selection of quarter turn fasteners, not sure about stainless.
or look at the latch that gemini cats use for the lockers on their boats, you might be able to adapt them. you might even be able to get them from performance sailing direct, so no shipping.
they are shown a few times in this vid
