Common in the work of Live Edge pioneer George Nakashima, butterfly joints are used to hold two or more wood boards together or to stabilize a knothole, usually done in a contrasting wood for aesthetic purposes.
A test shot of how we place the butterflies on the top before inserting them into the wood. The light wood inlays provide a nice contrast to the walnut and draws attention to the grain pattern.
The light wood butterfly joints are inserted along the clear resin filler and add a decorative element and structural support to this white oak table top.
There are traditional butterfly, shaped joiners, available in several species and in figured woods, which will complement the top. There is the option of filling large natural end cracks and knots with clear or colored resin. We take great care to ensure proper placement of the inserts before making any cuts to the wood. Maybe I will turn the wood vertical to fill it though, I think it may help to encase it in the plastic first, then let the resin work in from the end!
Yes, yes my husband did it.probablepossible2 years agoReplyI've used epoxy glue the same way for smaller cracks in wood that I'm about to turn.
