Ruined It: I can't never have nothing nice
hey there, the wonderful, antique, inherited, lovingly stored until i had an appropriate and suitable place to care for and display it proudly, table... i never considered that storing wood -- albeit well protected from all things kinetic -- in a garage without climate control would ever do such damage. Wood is still pretty as ***k but these 'splits' down the grain caused my heart to sink. Duh? Is there anything that can be done to stop further damage? What are the other things that -- like the garage climate issue -- might I be overlooking now that may only be realized later? The splits range from extremely fine to the widest of ... a snug fit for say a parking-garage payment ticket, like the kind you pull from the machine. Bad ideas i've considered include: injecting elmers into the cracks, walnuts and glue, attaching with glue and screws a patch from underside of the table to prevent travel of the existing spits, etc. etc. Any help or ideas or thoughts or hits over the head with a fry pan are appreciated.
