G'day guys,

I'm attempting to restore an old cabinet. I'm stripping it down, replacing what needs replacing, sanding and repainting.

On the bottom of the cabinet (the picture with my finger) the board join is starting to seperate. Its not open enough to pull apart and reglue. Was wondering if anyone has any ideas? Was thinking I could cut out the join where its seperated, place a piece of wood, glue and clamp then bog, sand and paint. I guess maybe a bowtie could work too?

If your repainting why not put a "wood" filler in or "carefully caulk it to a flush finish, cleaning any excess from the crack" and repaint. You could even leave as is just gently cleaned some so as to not destroy the grain and repaint, afteral its not new and just might add to the charm more than trying to add a plug into the existing.
"Good" luck however you do it, post a pic of the B-4 nd after would be nice.
