In Response To: Antique Pine table has pinholes (Katherine)

Hello

You can use an epoxy wood restorer to stabilize the rotted areas. The first thing done is saturate the area with the stabilizing liquid, then fill the rot with the filler. Check vandykes restorers supplies online--they should have it. Re the pin holes--carpenter ants would leave a larger hole and honeycombed areas eaten out of the wood. You may have termite or woodworm damage. If so--check the recent thread about woodworm in an antique clock on this site. You will find out how to exterminate any residents in your table.
