Hi all, I’m getting near the end of my bench build. Occasionally when I go to a board I’ll see a very very small insect or two crawling on it. Kind of like a tiny ant. I typically just squash it and move on, don’t want to look too closely for fear I’ll find a bunch of ‘em!
So anyway, when I finish my bench with boiled linseed oil, will that kill off any resident bugs and deter others from making a home there? I do see pinholes in some of my boards but can’t remember if they were there when I got them (free wood) or if they are the result of these tiny bugs I see.
Your thoughts? Advice?
