Thanks guys… here’s the plan from all your advice:
  1. Rough plane the slaps.
  2. Cut a butterfly at the end of the check to prevent the check from developing more (will this work like drilling a hole?)
  3. Clamp and then install a second butterfly further up and let it dry.
  4. Try for a more matching butterfly from the same wood. Prefer the butterfly to be less eye catching.
  5. Making it an Arc-Butterfly (will this work as well for force distribution?)

    Sounds good enough?
