Consolidating panel painting

A team of conservators are working at the reinforcement
(consolidation) of the several tempera panel painting. The wood have
a great damage caused by worms, so it is like a sponge. It is
causing the problems during the treating of the surface-painting
layer and the ground.

Several methods, like soaking into wax solution or using plexigum
solution, are in option. Does anyone have experience with this kind
of problems, or have new methods and new solutions for this matter.
