I have exposed hardwood stairs that match the hardwood floors in the house. Recently, I dropped a heavy item on the end of one step, and it cracked the wood along the grain and 3/4 the way across the step about 1.5 in. from the edge. The wood is cracked about halfway down- so the step is still functional, but needs repair.
I'm interested in hearing if this can be fixed, or is a replacement of the step the best approach. I'm worried about matching the stain if I replace it.
