Re: Sawn Beam Repair?

Bill -

I vote for Ernie's idea of sandwiching with the 2-2x's full length.  I would
also encourage you to glue the 2-2x's to the 4x in addition to the bolting so
that the whole beam will act as one.  I know we get no structural value for
the glue, but I believe it is very helpful in these applications.

Good luck.
