Redoing the water
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
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.
