I haven’t actually counted the pieces, but there are well over 200. They are individual pieces of hard maple and they are faced so that the end grain is up. What I mean by this is that the cutting surface is made up of end grain. Cutting it in two – especially with the threaded rods through it would be impossible. There would be no way to get a clean cut as it is too thick. I don’t think routing would work either as the cracks are probably several inches deep.
I think that Jimmy’s idea of the epoxy will work the best
