Good luck. That project is sometimes more of an endurance contest in sticking to proper procedure. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Done. Couldn't get starbrite, so I used Epifanes Teak sealer. Started with rough sanding with a machine and then went all the way up to 1200 grit wetsanding( didnt find anything finer than that). Pretty old platform so there are a few really deep scrathes I didnt grind away.

Teak in rough shape after a summer on the lake. Harold's 12 step process to the rescue! By the way, the last pic is of the first coat. I am officially on coat 4 right now. I will post a final after the last sanding and coat of oil is applied. My wife thinks I am crazy for spending so much time on the teak.

Uncleboo... that looks GREAT! Even with only one coat it's a night and day difference. I'm going to have to use Harold's process for my teak this winter and re-do mine. Definately post some final pictures up when you're done!

Looks excellent. Question: Seems like Harold's method (dont have time to find it now) includes dry sanding and eventually wet sanding after coats of oil are being applied. How do you keep from mucking up the sandpaper with oil? I tried to sand mine 3 weeks after the first coat "dried", and I cannot get through but about 4 seconds of sanding before my sheet is toast. What am I missing?

You have to let it dry, completely. Leave it out in the hot sun for a few hours in 80 degree weather will normally do it.

Then I wet sanded it with warm tap water. You need to keep dunking the sand paper into the bucket of water. I followed Harold's guide to the letter and got this as my result.



And my thread about doing the work on the platform.

Thanks again Harold.

Are you using star brite teak oil/ sealer? If that is gumming up then you put it on too thick. If you are using something else, it likely can't be finished with the same method.
