Unhappy Masters of Teak inside please

here are some pics of my teak platform. I can not get it to come out the way I want it.
in the pics you can see how the wood has streaks and how alot of the wood is REALLY dark, and others are rich golden color.
why????
Please help.... I think the streaks in the wood bother me the most.

Hate to say this but start over. Do you have access to a planer??

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That was going to be my question. That platform looks really odd. I've never had my platforms come out looking like that. It looks lacquered.

You need to put that thing on some sawhorses and scrub that oil off with mineral spirits and a brush. Then with a bucket of soapy water and a brush. After it dries,
SAND THE HEII out of it! Be aggressive! You can start with 60 then 80.
It looks like it wasn’t ready for oil when you started.. (not sanded well enough in some spots)..

I believe that dark spots are generally caused by applying teak oil to wet teak. Is this correct?
