I have used Teak while in a shop several years ago so I know about the usual cleaning with Denatured Alcohol or Acetone before glueup but I was wondweing about old weathered Teak. My brother in law brought over about 45ea. 1"X6"X36" removed from a patio deck. The wood is a little beat from the elements and I was wondering if the oil would still be present in the wood enough to affect glueup.
Well, normally if I was just going to do a quick small project I would just do that but I'm expecting at least 2 or 3 more loads of this for a bunch of small boxes and If I can save time, that would be nice.
