It is curious that you have no information as to the wood species. This could be important for determining whether the pieces can be salvaged. Photos 1 & 3 seem to show a grain pattern from a crotch or bend. This could infer stresses that will continue to cause cracks. If the cracking started when you roughed out the piece, it is unlikely that it has now stabilized.
