Buterfly repair question?

Barry Irby
>A friend does really fine turnings out of exotic blanks, some of which include amazing voids and bark inclusions. He says there was a magazine article, maybe five years ago, on installing butterfly patches into the blanks before they were turned. You install the patches to reeinforce the blanks and then turn them, leaving the remains of the butterfly in the piece.

Anyone have any information on this? What magazine? Where can I get a reprint?
