Re: Teak Strip Floor Sanding

It sounds more and more like itís in pretty good shape and not very big. Again if itís just scratched in the varnish Iíd give it a block sanding with 180 or 220 to get a mechanical bond and recoat, wouldnít even break out power tools.

Its a mix, much if it is pretty good, some high traffic areas are worn off to bare wood.

Re: Teak Strip Floor Sanding

There is a hand (non-electrical) tool called a "scraping hook", very commonly used in the maintenance of wooden boats, and another, a cabinet makers tool, called simply a "scraper". Those would be my choices given that teak and mastic are of totally different hardnesses.

The cabinet makers scraper is used for prepping for french-polishing furniture and will give you a very excellent finish.

Re: Teak Strip Floor Sanding

Once you prep the wood what varnish/finish will you use over the existing sole? How will you get it to adhere to the remaining existing finish? following the thread as I have a sole that needs to be refinished too.

Re: Teak Strip Floor Sanding

I havent chosen a specific varnish yet, but likely a polyurethane because its a high traffic area. If the old varnish is well adhered to the wood and sanded then the new should adhere to it well.

Re: Teak Strip Floor Sanding

That teak looks to be in really nice condition. I would just use the 3M Sanding pads, and maybe some sand paper in spots if required.

Then clean it well and varnish. Just did my cabin sole that way and it looks great.
Good luck!

That pic is from when it was new, just to show the pattern.

The teak is in generally good shape now, some dark spots in galley, but othewise OK. Vanish is shot in high traffic areas though.

Re: Teak Strip Floor Sanding

I used Varathane on a couple boats after the guy that did the high school basketball court turned me on to it. It's great for floors. Beware some Marine varnishes are fairly soft. Not all but some.
