Butternut slab. Cut 1/3 off of the end for proper length and added angle to straight edges. I used the Offerman router planing jig as outlined in Fine Woodworking Issue #222 It worked out perfectly!

I then filled all of the cracks with epoxy as well as had to add the signature bowtie inlay for a larger crack. I used black walnut for this and while I could have used a bigger one or multiple small ones I’m still happy with the results. Finally finished it in General Finishes Arm-R-Seal which has certainly become my favorite finish.

Final touch was a friend helped out by welding the legs for me out of steel which adds a very nice contrast to the wood.

It’s a wonderful piece of wood and very nice piece of work.
