I’m sure there’s someone on LJ who mixes stone (et al) with woods and can offer design ideas about simulating amber with tinted epoxy. Maybe with inclusions? (A leaf of the same type of tree? Maybe a costume jewelry bee?) What is that wood?

You might want to fill in knots or streaks with dark colored epoxy, as well (if they are missing wood).

Me, I think I might take an inch or so in the middle to get a solid joint on the ends, with the void only in the middle of the length. And I think I’d round out those corners, asymetrically. The squarer side looks just okay, but the clipped corners are a bit jarring. Just enough curve to “naturalize” the edges.

Looks like you got a great project underway! I hope we’ll see pictures as you move along.
