This is just the same nonsense that Onvlee scoffed at in the original post;

Quote

Because of the scarcity and expense of wood, the Egyptians would reuse pieces of wood as much as possible. Some of this recycled wood was burned, for example, in mortar preparation. If a piece of wood was already centuries old when it was burned, radiocarbon dates of the resulting charcoal would be centuries older than the mortar for which it was burned.

There is no sense in the concept that extreme scarcity of wood might lead to large amounts of old wood existing. If they really made sleepers, furniture, and structures that lasted for centuries then the wood would be cut up and be reused for more of the same but smaller. Wastage would be used to build fires or the need of the moment. Scarcity always means scarcity. There were no warehouses full of four hundred year old firewood.

Also as was pointed out even reeds failed to support Egyptological dating.
