I'm trying to refinish a teak table, but it has an area that has been sanded down too deep. The rest of the top has sanded beautifully. I don't know what to do about the one deep gouge which is very light in color. Can I stain it to match the rest of the table? Or stain the whole table? Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated!

For teak furniture, you generally do not have to refinish them since they are naturally oily. I think it is okay to start the finish on the sanded part. It should not be too damaging to the wood, and the overall effect should be good.

If you are refinishing teak furniture you do not have to do too much prep work. Your goal is to keep the natural oils in the timber. If the natural oils are still in the timber then you will not have any problems with UV degradation, and it should be pest resistant. There is a lot of recycled teak furniture around that does not need maintenance because of the natural properties of the teak.
