Yeah. That Silver Maple. The little log I started with on the 2nd of March had some issues.
Then, there’s this.
The fix worked. But, it required, as seen in #1, directly above, re-turning the upper half of the outside. An iffy proposition, at best. It got a lot thinner. I knew, early on, that it would probably break at some point. That clacking noise you hear when there’s a separation developing, was evident long before it broke. Oh so careful, was Woodsmith. Nonetheless. In the end, the repair is unnoticeable on the outside. This is the end that broke, where that big offset is visible in the #1, mentioned above. Invisible.
And, on the inside, wound up just looking like a normal crack. It fit right in. Visible top-center in this photo.
I’m amazed it worked. I didn’t think the contact in the glue joint would hold up.
The pyrography(?) is a diversion for the eye.
Next up? The other half of the log.
