The table looks almost like the day it was built. It's holding up well.

I've had great luck (touch wood) bonding teak with epoxy. I think that the secret is having very clean mating surfaces, and then cleaning the surfaces thoroughly with a solvent to remove the oils from the wood. If you leave teak alone for even a day, that il will rise to the surface again.

Last fall I was doing a repair on a friend's boat. We were short on time so I tried some gorilla glue. Same prep as epoxy, clamped it up to set and 7 months later it's holding well, even though it's part of a toe rail that bends through the joint. I'll be interested to see if it does have staying power. I love that stuff. You can glue most anything to most anything.
