Wood Veneer Table Top

There was a time when it was the height of style to laminate solid wood(Teak) table tops, to give them that 'now' look. Unfortunatly our IG was built during this this Hong Kong fashion statement.

Looking at the origional sales brochure it looks as though the whole origional interior was laminate. Does anyone else suffer from this affliction?

Interesting.* Our lowly1983 *32 IG has a solid teak table (no veneer) wonder if some PO changed it.

Wood Veneer Table Top

Shrimp, my vintage Marine Trader also had laminate on all the horizontal surfaces. It originally had a "wood-grain" look to it but years of UV exposure had made it faded and nasty.

Solution: I bought some pressure-sensitive teak veneer from Rockler wood supplier.

Here are Before & After pics.* Once installed, the stuff stays put very well, and can be sanded, etc like real wood. (It is real teak) .

RE: Wood Veneer Table Top

My wife was going to refinish the salon table, and she sanded thru the thin veneer, so I sand the first layer off.* Also there were a couple of areas under the windows the teak veneer had water damage marks, so I sand the first layer off.* I was going to apply a new teak veneer layer but after 13+ years the table and area still look good.

RE: Wood Veneer Table Top

There were a lot of water stains on the teak plywood in my boat as well -- as you can see in the above pics. Several stained pieces under the windows (which had been replaced and are now watertight) had been done with luan plywood, and the overall look wasn't great. We elected to sand, prime and paint it all white. The instructions on using the Peel & Stick veneer say you need a smooth hard surface anyway, and we decided the boat didn't justify the time and $$$ to prime/shellac all the bulkheads and then veneer them over.

RE: Wood Veneer Table Top

We have a limited amount of wide, sawn teak veneer* up to 12 inches wide that is sanded to 1/8" thickness. It is old air dried, Burma teak and free of heart center.
