Got an old pallet that some machinery came on. Once it was planed down it turned out to be blue pine. One of the boards split so I decided to try my hand at bow ties(butterfly) to reinforce and highlight the split. I figured if it didn’t turn out I’d just toss it on the trash pile.

Cut all of the bow ties free hand on the band saw and then used the router to create the recesses for them.

Finished with BLO and a wipe on poly.

That is just too cool. I love the inserts holding it from splitting any more…..........Jim
