On the Bench

Jan 14

Today I’m working on a Monk that’s full of holes.

They’re wormholes from wood beetles and there’s a LOT!

I counted over 200.

Been snowy here in Ohio so I poured me a “Brandon sized” Old Fashioned, put on some music out in the shop, and worked on this piece for a few hours today.

Here’s a pic of the piece with all the previous filler removed from the holes:

Monk Nutcracker

Here’s a pic of the piece getting ready to have all the holes injected with wood hardener.

This stabilizes the piece and kills any remaining wood beetle eggs.


This is really a great piece and is going to look fantastic once it’s done.
