    I have my grandfather dining room table that my Great grandfather made. Years of sitting near a fireplace cause some of the wood to dry and separate. I was thinking epoxy to fill the gap then scraping and putting finish back on. I want to keep some of the wear and tear but refresh and keep going. Any suggestions, ideas are welcome. My skill is still very moderate but I am will to try.

    Well if you use epoxy, you’ll probably have to take the legs and apron off in order to tape the bottom up so it doesn’t leak everywhere. At that point I wonder if the top is going to come apart… if so you might be able to glue the joint back together if you could plane down the edges a little. If not, I really like the epoxy idea. Tbh, I’ve never used epoxy much. It’s a beautiful table, and I wouldn’t want to remove all the character either. Keep us updated on the project, I’d like to see how it comes out!
