Good news on the dent! On another forum someone suggested to try hardwood clamp dies to "roll" some of the dent out. Well I tried it and got great results. Removed abput 75% of the dent before I cracjed one of the blocks from improper grain orentation. Looks good to me. I may or may not use filler. Here's before and after pix.
