I started out with a walnut slab about 89” long x 15” wide 5/4.
Cut it down to two pieces 40” x 15” to compensate for significant end checking that I found unrepairable. Will have them planed down until they clean up at another shop with a large planer. Both pieces have a triangle shaped crack that goes through the board and extends down the length approx 11”. Should I make a bowtie or consider another method? Would I be alright if I just epoxied the entire top?
I plan on ripping a straight edge on both of them and joining them at the middle to make a table top for a coffee table. This is my first rodeo with live edge so I appreciate any advice you can muster up.
