Wiping the edges with acetone is critical. The teak has oil in it that will ruin even an epoxy bond.

I like to use “V” bit sets for edge gluing thin panels. The V gives more glue surface and keeps the joint aligned so there is far less need for flattening afterwards.

You can see the process in a video on my website. Scroll down the “Skill Building” page, it is About the 5th one from the top, Aligning Thin Edges for Glue Ups.
