I am in the process of making a table out of a large section of a Black Walnut root which has a minor amount of dry rot. I have treated these areas with glycol and I have scaped out the dry rot. Eventually I want to apply a Wood Hardener to these same areas. Now here is my problem: the local Home Depots, Lowes, Ace Hardwares and Boat Owner's Warehouses no longer carry MinWax's Wood Hardener or any similar products. The only option that any of them had was Elmer Glue's Wood Hardener which looks and smells like diluted white glue. I read in an old thread that Lacquer thinned 5% to 10% with Acetone "is about the same stuff as the MinWax hardener."
Has anybody ever tried that and if so, how did it work for you. I also read that another option is to thin epoxy with DNA but that seems as if it could be the more expensive option of the two.
