Wear a belt and don’t bend over 8^)

I’ve seen plenty of LJ projects where cracks are filled with epoxy and filler color (I’m partial to turquoise), but it certainly is a judgement call on the safety of finishing your turning.
Best advice I can offer is careful wood prep before turning, letting the drying stresses work out over time by doing partial turning, letting it set for some time, rinse, repeat.

Turning with end grain on the sides always seems to be a battle with how the wood wants to move.
