Back Splat Splice Repair

I have been repairing a back splat from a rocking chair recently. It split and then experienced serious shrinking making it impossible to clamp back together. I determined to splice in pieces of oak.

Here's the split with pencil marks for where I need to remove wood to fit the splice.

Planing the surface down to the lines.

Boths sides planed and ready for splice to be glued in.

Now it's ready for coloring.
