I bought a teak board but I need thicker

I bought a teak board but I need to cut it and make a thicker parts. Can I glue two pieces together to make a thicker part? If I can, what glue should I use? The pieces I have to make are outside ones

Epoxy and polyurethane glues are good choices for teak.
If you use PVA or hide glue, wipe all surfaces with a solvent just before gluing.

Re: I bought a teak board but I need thicker

Why not buy the correct thickness teak?

For gluing teak I use WEST epoxy.

Epoxy or Resorcinal glue. Wipe the teak mating surfaces with acetone first to remove surface oil.

I second the Resorcinal glue. This glue is stronger than epoxy but to be stronger there must be a good fit on the joint as does it will not fill larger gaps like epoxy.

Yeah, I used a lot of Resorcinol on my first boat, but pretty much went to epoxy... more forgiving for sure unless the fit is perfect.
