    I would love to sand and finish yours. I happen to be in the flooring business so sanding wood floors is my passion. This is pretty familiar stuff for me. I just sanded it down with 80 grit orbital palm sander. I used watco teak oil finish from menards. Like someone said in a previous post the lower grits like 80 or 100 will leave the pores open for the oil to penetrate better. If 80 doesn't cut off the old stuff try 60 then finish with a finer grit.

    Used a "West marine" teak cleaner and brightener, on our sailboat we used spic n span and bleach and our teak was always perfect, guess I should have gone with that. I did not start with 80 grit, went straight to the 220. The light places are crevices in the grain, I guess I need more sanding A lot of high and low spots. I used starbright teak oil.

    What are you using for a finish and did you use anything to clean it first?

    I do not know if anyone has mentioned the product by Sikkens called Cetol. I use the satin finish, it wears like iron and makes the teak look like new. I give my platform a quick cleaning and sanding and apply Cetol only once every three years. This product is commonly used on the deck teak on sailboats and yachts.

    Picture is a little small but I had the dark lines you refer to and the sanding looked after it for the most part, still had some when i oiled but it looks fine.
    Thanks for the response. Was thinking about getting 100 or 150 grit out first and giving it a good once over then 220 and then clean it up again.
