PM, the sun trick works with finished or unfinished wood. UV rays tend to change the color of exposed wood. If you ever had a paneled wall and took a picture down, you would have noticed the wood behind is a darker color. I have used the trick many times. Set the wood in bricht sunlight. It wspecially works good with cherry.

Yeah I was kinda disappointed in the butcher block look . I knew it was going to happen . It was my only choice to make the yield work out with the teak . Hopefully it will settle down in time or either I will just get used to it . You can really darken cherry with sunlight and pretty quick . In wood working lumber selection and grain matching is a big part of it .

Try cleaning your teak with 3M Scotchbrite pads. They are like 4X6 inch and are great for oxidized fiberglass (available at most paint and automotive parts stores that sell paint. They come in Ultra Fine (Grey), Fine (Red), and rougher. Start with the Ultra fine or fine with water and Dawn.

My wife & I work with all kinds of wood in the upper $$$$$$$$$ furniture. We use the current color with the wood to create "as your see" piece. The post about dawn works well on some woods (soft). Find the balance with the wood, change up, if you can. Look at it this way; you have a unquiet color plan. BE PROUD OF IT!! Then put in on the market & sell it!!!!
