My friend has asked me to make some replacement parts for her drop leaf table. Making replacements would be pretty easy it’s just some oak with a rabbet in it. The big question is if I can make a better piece that can hold more weight.
Here is a picture of one of the broken sides, the split is pretty much with the grain as you would expect
Here is a picture with all 3 pieces.
Maybe using a tighter grained wood like maple?
I would love to here some ideas or suggestions because I have no experience with this so anything I would do would be educated guessing.
