good morning folks,
I’m very much new to this site so please be gentle.
My question is about water damaged (teak) veneer (marine environment). Water entered from the back of the substrate and caused the top surface to appear milky with some black blotches. Some areas are delaminated while others areas, the top surface is intact but milky looking. This maybe a lost cause but I’m open to any suggestions, ideas or experiments.
thanks – joejonika

Welcome to LJ.
The prognosis is not great for this problem. If you could post a picture it would help. Is it near the floor?
I ask because I had that exact problem on my boat. I sandwiched the piece with 1/2” plywood on the back side and a 1/4” Teak “baseboard” on the front, all bedded in epoxy.
The Teak will be very thin and if there is any de-lamination it will be just about impossible to save the Teak veneer.

nicely done shipwright,
I can’t figure how to get my pics to transfer to this forum. But, your comments pretty much nailed my situations. Also, the veneer is hollow behind the subsurface. I removed some molding and the top surface came with it (bum).
This is my sort of plan. The damaged edges will be framed with wider molding and the the damaged veneer surface will be painted white. Seeing the boat has half a rain forest in it, a little white paint should compliment the teak.
thanks for your input shipwright,

Just make sure you stop the leak that caused the original problem.

I think you need a certain number of posts (4 maybe) before you can post pics. Comment on some projects and then try.
