I have inherited a table made of South African Yellow wood, and Stinkwood. The table was made in the 1800’s, and the Yellow wood table top is cracking and splitting badly. My question is there a way to close/clamp the splits back together? I am concerned about simply trying to glue and clamp the fractures considering the age of the wood. Once I have the cracks repaired I want to reseal the table top to try to prevent further cracking.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
