Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

I'm not surprised that the worm hasn't gone for the hardwood framing ..... softwood [and associated plywood glues] seem to offer the beasties plenty of continuing delight in this particular cabinet!

The sides seem to exhibit plenty of infestation - and as mentioned previously, there seemed to be fresh frass in your original photos' ..... indicating on-going activity.

Under these circumstances, I would definitely replace the sides [and give the framework a good lick of clear Five Star Cuprinol - just for good measure].

It's coming together eh? !!
