Hi,

I am working with a one and a half inch thick board for an art project. The board has some cracks that i would like to patch or stitch.

The crack on one side goes about 3/4" deep for about half the board (roughly).

If I wanted to patch the cracks with wood inlay (ie Nakashima's butterflies), do I have to go deeper than the crack to protect it, say to 1"?

Or is there another way that might be simpler? Could I pour wood glue or resin in the cracks?

Thanks!

Great, thanks! Any recommendations about a chisel?

I should make my own dutchmen, right? I don't have a band saw, so probably going to use my coping saw. Also, any suggestions about the dutchmen thickness? I would probably use 3/4" stock.
