ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Repair of Woodworm damaged wood

I have an upholstered victorian low chair oak framed with mahogany veneer (about 2.5 mm thick) the beautiful front legs are mahogany and in good repair however the oak side stringer and one rear leg are badly damaged by wood-worm. Is it practical to inject timber with epoxy resin or should I must I do the big job of copying and replacing the damaged timber. The infestation damage is mild on the stringer but the leg is so badly damaged I fear for its ability to bear heavy loading.

Would really appreciate advice Regards Noel
