New Jersey Master Craftsman Restores and Protects Damaged 375-Year-Old Rotten Wood Using Waterlox

When one of our most dedicated customers found a 375-year-old piece of semi-rotten wood that was likely going to be thrown out, Master Craftsman Eric looked at it as a challenge.
"It was rotten, full of sponge-like wood sections and it had cracks, and holes all over," he said. "I think most people would've discarded the wood immediately. But through the use of a thinned epoxy almost fully penetrated through the thickness of the plank we stabilized the material and filled the holes.
"Then, using Waterlox, we were able to give it a furniture grade appearance, avoiding the 'plastic' look associated with epoxies. It's truly a testament to Waterlox and how it brings out the natural beauty of wood."
