Report need carpentry advice...rotted table leg in Ajijic/Chapala/Guadalajara Posted November 10, 2019 Need carpentry advice. I have a large wood table outside (4" legs) that are rotting at the bottom. How best to secure them from the water? Fill them with wood dough and seal or varnish heavily? Doesn`t matter how they look. It`s just a large work table. I just need it to keep working. Thanks.
