Salvaged this slab from a chunk I had to cut off of a big log with the chainsaw so the carriage posts would fit by on the sawmill. Had to dye and epoxy fill several bigger cracks. It is thick enough that it has about 2.5” glue surface on the 45cut so I just used biscuits for alignment then put in the mulberry splines afterwards. The slots were cut with a handsaw and chisel and if I were to do it again I’d definitely cut them on the table-saw before it was glued up. Finished with 6 coats of Real Milk Paint Pure Tung Oil thinned with their citrus solvent. Buffed with a green Scotch-brite pad between each coat.
