Hi,

we have original but stripped wooden doors throught the house (Victorian) and on two there are patches about as big as your thumb that are dark and slightly tacky to the touch.

The patches never seem to dry, although they don't seem to grow either.

I'm worried it's some sort of rot or something, could it be?

Thanks!

It sounds like resin out of the old pine. Does it have a slight 'pine' smell?

Oh and there is absolutely NO rot that matches that description.
