Thanks for all your suggestions. For now, I have it sitting hole down over a black piece of paper to see if any more dust emerges. Will recheck in the morning.

It will “bug” me until I can be reasonably assured there isn’t a bug in there. I may give papadan’s suggestion a try with the wire to see if I can squish something. Even so, since it won’t be seen, I may do a little “exploratory surgery” as JBROW suggested. If I can get a clean hole, then I will plug it with a dowel.

pintodeluxe, I bought the poplar from a cabinet shop going out of business so I do not know if it was kiln dried. But like you and others mentioned above, I’m concerned heat will cause other problems.

UncannyValleyWoods, I appreciate the humor. LOL
