I have an old very large solid wood box; the wood is beautiful, not too sure what it is though. The sides are dove-tailed, and the only nails/screws are the ones used to hold the skirting and hinges.
Someone from my neighborhood was shifting house and after they left, they dumped this box (together with their other junk) out on the front lawn- which is so large it can accomodate an 6 foot adult or two kids. Measures about 1metre x 500cm x 300cm.
However, there appears to be some old termite infestation in the bottom section of the box and on one of the sides; about 5% of the box. There was also a small colony of black ants. I washed them out with a hose and sprayed the box with Baygon, but I am a bit worried about the old termite nest section. I don't think there are any more termites. What should I do? Should I give it another good spray and then paint over the termite section using a wood filler?
