another topic for 100 different approaches.

if I were doing it, I would consider these methods:
(1) rout out the underside on both good and bad parts
and put in a duchman with epoxy.
(2) drill some 1/2” dia holes and epoxy in wood dowel rods
if you do use wood dowel rods, cut a groove in the rod to release the pressure
so the excess epoxy can escape: or make the hole bigger or – use 1/4” rebar in the 1/2” holes.
(3) soak the rotten end in CPES penetrating epoxy to restore
the rotted wood & seal it prior to applying your finish of choice.
[and not a thin epoxy “wipe” – the epoxy or hardener must soak in to the core].
(and the same treatment for the end grain).

BTW ~ Lookin Good so far !!!!!!
