Looks like you sanded through the teak veneer. That table is most certainly plywood with a veneer.

Yup, you sanded through the veneer. Most furniture, especially exotic woods, are very thin veneer over particle board or MDF these days so you don’t have much room for sanding. For future reference, your best bet for removing the iron stain was probably to use a chemical stripper to remove the finish and then oxalis acid solution to remove the iron stain. If you need to scrub, use a synthetic steel wool.
