Mahogany is a pretty close to ok replacement and more affordable then teak. white oak (never use red oak) works well outdoors and turns grey if left to the elements. and can darken with varnish.
You can "scarf" sections of new teak into the old.
You can find aluminum toe rail on ebay too. Not cheap even used.

I wish that Good Old Boat article included a photo. It would be nice to see how it all came together.

Someday I hope to replace my teak toe rail with aluminum perf rail. It is so much more functional and would remove the piece of teak on my boat that gets the most abuse.
Seems to me welding experience on aluminum would be a money saver on such a project.
