Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

This week I'll have to make a decision what to do with those cabinet sides. They are solid enough but as the pictures show are full of woodworm holes. No doubt with the use of wood filler the holes can be made to disappear but there's always the possibility there could still be nasties in the plywood.

Worth taking a chance or make new panels? Bear in mind the set does not belong to me and I don't wish to disappoint it's owner when those tell tale holes appear again on the cabinet.

The side panels are easy enough to replicate. Use 9mm grade AB plywood.
