I got a split piece of walnut with a large gash in it for free from my local wood supplier. He said he was going to toss it. I cut all the usable strips from it and used them for making cutting boards. I was going to throw this piece away when I started messing around with it. I laid wax paper onto some scrap plywood and clamped the piece to the plywood. I poured clear resin into the crack. Once the resin set I trimmed it with some maple and sanded it smooth untill the resin was clear. So while it looks like it has a gash in it it is actually filled in. Once I oiled it the wood just popped! It is one of the favorite things I have attempted so far.
