I am sure there will be others along to give you great advice for your query. I will just say that if you use copper, make sure it is clean(acetone); and use 2-part epoxy to glue it in place. Again, acetone cleans up epoxy well.

If you will fill all checks and such with epoxy, its good practice to do a sealer coat first, and there are many different products you can do so with, ie., shellac, epoxy, sanding sealer, etc., and this way you can eliminate most of the air bubbles that will form in your epoxy pour- if you dont seal the wood first.
