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.

50 years ago my father would bring home all kinds of brain teasers from work that men he worked with would make. This one i have never seen

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 . . .

ROZI have seen trees with nails in them amongst other metal ,would be cool to find one and make one like this.RANCEI may try that approachNORMANAlways another one to figure out.JIMTake a good look the bolt is free to slide in a 1/64 oversize hole and is in one piece but good guess .DWIGHTInteresting 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.
