I've been given a bunch of teak 1x1's, enough to make the rubrails for the PMD I'm building from plans. I haven't bought mahogony for the rails yet. Can I cut the teak down to 1/2" x 1" and use it for the rails? My concerns are:
1. Will teak take epoxy well (for scarfing and for bonding to the hull)?
2. How should I protect the teak: epoxy, or some kind of oil?
3. Anything I'm missing?
Thanks & happy holidays
