I’ve been making some walnut cutting boards. I had an end piece with a big crack in it so I decided to try my hand at making a bow tie to salvage the board and hopefully look neat in the process.
After finishing the bow tie, I planed it smooth and put some epoxy filler in the crack.
I wound up putting a bow tie on both sides to keep the crack from getting bigger.
I learned a few things in the process so hopefully next time it will go a little better.
