I would love to sand and finish yours. I happen to be in the flooring business so sanding wood floors is my passion. This is pretty familiar stuff for me. I just sanded it down with 80 grit orbital palm sander. I used watco teak oil finish from menards. Like someone said in a previous post the lower grits like 80 or 100 will leave the pores open for the oil to penetrate better. If 80 doesn't cut off the old stuff try 60 then finish with a finer grit.

After getting off of work yesterday, I pulled the platform and started sanding. Here is what I learned.

1. Progress may be slow due to repeated trips to the fridge for a fresh beer.
a. Solution - place beer in cooler and take to where you are sanding.
2. It's going to take longer than you thought.
a. Buy extra beer before beginning.
3. Any glue used in the original assembly has probably failed by now. Disassemble as much as you are comfortable with, it makes the sanding easier.
4. As much time as I spent sanding; next time I may just run it through my thickness planer.
5. See items 1 & 2.

This is early in the process.

Just got around to pulling my teak in prep for the summer here. One of the pieces my support bracket is attached to looks about on its last leg.
Any good tips on where to get a replacement piece?

I have a little question.
For redoing after a season do you sand of with a 1000 grid or somethin and wich grid to don't make it slippery? Or do you just oil again?
