I removed the ceiling of a 26' trawler. The total square footage would be approximately 100 square feet. Most of the trawler the manufacturer used teak. The ceilings however appear to be some form of teak veneer copy. The original was a dark varnish and I'd like to lighten if up a little but would prefer a wood that would match well with teak. Locally I have found 1/4" maple veneer which appears to have the closest grain pattern. The teak stain I purchased is very dark and not what I'm looking for. Saw in a previous post where a pecan stain was used. The teak I have already refinished was done using Schooner cut with 40% mineral spirits then several coats of a cheaper varnish. I'm not worried so much about UV damage inside. Any suggestions you found worked would be appreciated.
