Question:


We've got an Amish made oak rocking chair that sits on our front porch. About a year ago I started noticing small bits of super fine sawdust under a specific part of it. I would turn it over a look carefully with a flashlight but have never been able to see a hole or a bug. What in the heck could this be? I recently wrapped it with plastic so it doesn't get into anything else, but I still wonder what kind of bomb I can put in there. Thanks Kurt Sligh

Answer:

It must be made out of pretty good size material. Sounds like Powder Post Beetle. It will have to be stripped and have a borate applied before re-staining.
