I made a table using a piece of juniper which was dryed out. I coated it with 3 coats of varathane and now 8 months later there seems to be bugs in the table. As Juniper is a termite resistant wood what could it be and how do I get rid of it?
There is a hole in the wood and fine shavings on the floor.

Beetles are your main culprit. Possibly powderpost beetles. Call a termite fumigation company. A customer might allow you to throw your table in under the tarp.
