Refurbishing teak flooring

Hi

I have a veneer teak flooring in pretty bad shape (see the pictures). Does anyone have experience refurbishing teak veneer in this condition?

Re: Refurbishing teak flooring

I pulled all my floorboards on a Catalina 36, lightly sanded and put three coats of polyurethane. Looked great, I thought.
If your material is too thin to sand out the defects/damage you'll probably need to buy new plywood and use the old piece for a pattern.
Good luck!

Re: Refurbishing teak flooring

Light sanding is not going to remove all the embedded dirt (and oil?) in OP's floor.

You could try Tekka A&B, I hope somebody has a better suggestion.

True! Stripped them first, then sanded.
He might try some deck stripper like oxalic acid. But if the stains are deep and the veneer thin, it's time for a new board. There's your better suggestion.!

Gackkk! Teka will almost surely kill the veneer. I'd say don't even think about this one!
