There are at least three errors on that page. It depends how pedantic you want to be.
There’s a spelling mistake, a duplication, an apostrophe error, a wrong abbreviation, questionable lack of hyphenation (as noted in a later visitor comment) and then a couple of questions of writing style, word order and punctuation.
I’d put a couple of hyphens in there too, i.e. hand-waxed, solid-pine. I can’t see the spelling mistake though (apart from the one in the image filename).
I agree re “hand-waxed”, the image filename issue hints at the spelling mistake! Just spotted the wrong abbreviation in there too!
