Dennis -

Glad to be of help.

As a matter of course, when we strengthen existing wood beams by bolting more
wood along side it as you are doing, we also specify that the two pieces
should be glued together.  I know the glue has no Code structural value, but
it seems like a good idea, especially when shrinkage, etc, is considered.
