A friend (Hubert) gave me a section of a cedar tree which has been drying for over a year but even though looking good it still had some splitting which had to be delt with.

I still had to level each side of the section with my router leveling jig along with the band sander to get each side level

Then I decided it could be used..I placed some bow ties (walnut and oak) in on each side that were 3/4” thick so it should hold some of the large split areas. I placed some general resin epoxy to fill the cracks then a final coat on top. Being my first epoxy project I think it came out better than expected and hoping it will last a little while …...

Mark thanks – I did the first coat of epoxy to fill voids and cracks and lightly sanded it out. Then allied a final top coat which only had a few voids to smooth out / very trying when working with Epoxy as once you start mixing your committed !
All tape was removed on last coat and I let the excess cover the edges
