I’m still guessing and haven’t figured it out yet. But you will post the secret, right?

You soaked the wood condensed it on one side buy putting it under pressure inserted the bolt and put it back in water so it regained it’s original shape .

+1 to what A1Jim said… you enhanced the cupping tendencies, drilled & inserted the bolt, then re-dried it.

Another way is to simply cut the bolts in half and epoxy it together in the middle piece of wood.

Let’s see, you take some binoculars, hold them backwards, look thru them at the bolt, then pick up the bolt with some tweezers . . .

I have seen trees with nails in them amongst other metal ,would be cool to find one and make one like this.
RANCE
I may try that approach
NORMAN
Always another one to figure out.
JIM
Take a good look the bolt is free to slide in a 1/64 oversize hole and is in one piece but good guess .
DWIGHT
Interesting approach and train of thought !
Like back to the future .

I saw one with the (heated) water method Jim mentioned (and totally forgot about making one myself)... I’m pondering alternates (assuming no cutting/gluing) and am stumped.
