Decided to go the Sofa Table / Entry Table route.

Cut down to 48” length, glued the long crack filled crack and worm holes with Wonderfill by Rockler. Not going to be true black.

Tried to plane the bow out at the Portland shop did not work too well so am living with the 3/16” -ish bow.

Been sanding a little the last 3 days, got it sanded on the top side to 220, looks good IMO.

I am really itching to put a coat of Shellac on it to see the grain better. But rain started last night and weather folks say expect 4 more days. 90% humidity now. Worried about the shellac blushing.
