Actually you could epoxy wood veneer on some styles of plastic hatch covers and they would work fine but it still leaves the problem of a flat spot.

Even better is to just mount the deck plate on the underside side of the deck and bond the cut out to the lid. Being made out of ABS plastic I just I bond them with epoxy. You can make them pretty seamless. Just make sure to aline the grain. These were placed behind the cockpit but same idea. Since these I have started using only quarter-turn deck plates. The screw-outs jam too easily and the pry-outs are just a pain.
