Joining 2 live edge slabs
I have some live edge cherry slabs that I am planning on making a dining table out of them. They will finish at 2" thick. I am inquiring about some ideas on A. How to join them effectively and B. How to keep them flat. I was thinking about edge gluing and using dowels. As for keeping it flat, I was planning on routing a mortise for a piece of C channel and using some lag bolts. The slabs have been drying in the basement for over a year. They are next to the wood burner, which runs non stop for about 4 months. Should be pretty dry by now. Any thoughts or best practice? Thanks!
