Re: Cabin sole revarnish
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The way I fix teak plywood that has been damaged is to find some teak of a smilar grain and colour to do the patching rather than to use just epoxy. I rip the teak usually using a table saw to a thickness just a bit more that the original. Cut my patch pcs. Slightly larger than the areas to be repaired. I note and line up the grain direction when cutting these patch pcs. Then I lay the patch pcs. Over the areas to be repaired and mark with a fine pencil. A sharp chiesel and some patience should give you a tight fitting pc. Epoxy in place, cure and then plane/scrap or sand to thickness.

Subject: Re: [AmelYachtOwners] Cabin sole revarnish
On a few places on the cabin sole the ply has chipped at locker edges. Has anyone experience of how to fix this?
I was thinking of colouring as necessary then building up the height with a little epoxy before applying the varnish / polyurethane
If so how best to thicken the epoxy to fill the chipped gaps but still remaining ‘clear’
