First attempt, I am trying to add a number of layers of my teak sealer over it (with a Qtip) just to see what happens. It's at 3 layers now, and starting to fade. It's still quite noticeable, but I'll see how that goes. If it fails, I will try the veneer or even possibly something else to do a cover up.
THanks again folks. I'm a certified wood working moron. ha ha ha
