Faux Teak Finish

Redoing the water damaged interior of my 30+ year old 48ft teak veneered sailboat interrior. I replaced the rotted main bulk head where the leaky chain plates had left their mark. Now I am at the stage of replacing - repairing the MANY areas of surface damage to the veneered ply wood interior from leaky deck fittings etc.

I have considered going with the "white and wood" Herreshoff look to cover the water damage but would rather find a way to repair the teak look in the not too visible areas with a painted-on/brushed-on faux teak finish. I have found videos of other woods done this way but have been unable to faux teak.

My idea is to stabilize the veneer with CEPS sand and paint on the new teak finish. Looking for any advice out there especially the base coat color & product to use as well as the top color & product to use also what tool-brush has worked for creating the fine grain appearance.

I also considered and abandoned the idea of using paper backed teak veneer because $150. for a 4x8 sheet, no experience, ( ie. how to attach, how to blend in with existing good teak on the same area, and color matching issues etc.) and thinking faux teak a better way to go.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Faux Teak Finish

Hi, just saw your thread...I am almost finished with my Irwin 30 and I've done exactly what you are talking about.
The bulkheads were structurally sound but the top layer of the laminate fell of from a leaky chainplate(s). I peeled the layer off and sanded the wood with 120. Here in Mexico there is a 3mm laminate wood with a mahogany finish. it has a little more grain than teak so I stained it to be a little bit lighter and redid what teak I could and made a lot of mouldings using cedar and Zar teak stain...Then I experimented and made an oil/stain/varnish mix to preserve the teak...man was I happy with that. It looks great!
If I can help you just let me know...I can send ya some pix etc...and I am now making a HOW TO for ZAR showing my cedar/teak methods...
Have a great refit... peace

That's something we cannot all agree upon.
