Well I know all you guys like to see a job in progress so .. thanks to Rogue Waves' suggestion I finished the job Real easy to do, despite the fact Ive never used a router

Pic 1 shows the split, and the router cut above it,

Then in pic 2, I got some rectangular strips and knocked them into the gaps with glue, I found a router bit that was 1.5 mm smaller than the thickness of the wood strips for the cutting, so they went in good and tight planed then sanded off the old varnish

Then Pic3 finished and ready for varnish

I've also discovered polyurethane varnish .. good stuff and it dries in about an hour .... we'll see how well it wears and lasts

Disappointed that you didn't 'plod' it up with a big wodge of body filler.

I used to do some really fancy dovetail work with a router and won another router with this wee table.
