Be careful if the panels are veneered. Any aggressive cleaning or sanding will just burn through the veneer.

Daily Sea Fin is produced is Seattle mainly for resturant tables chair floor wood work. My son's who own restaurant gave me a can when we bought the Eagle, we have a lot of teak. However, we refurbish and stain most of the teak first. Daily is thin and drys sort of hard like varnish, but not as hard but a little to heavy for interior teak vaneer, that is why I use Liquid Gold. However I do use it of the exterior teak deck, they look like they are varnished with multi coats. Not a believer fan of teak oil.

Very important before you put something on it. Some finishes will soften when oiled and not dry out well, stay tacky.
