More good info everyone, thanks. I thought that dry was dry, and that partial turning was for wet wood, but apparently I was wrong about that. I’ll try to make a habit of not leaving the wood in a “chunk” once I get started. And Phil, the first and third pieces are walnut, I’m not sure about the second one. Also, the pieces were in an area of crotch or bend, so maybe that at least partially explains the problem.

So I continued to work on #3 and I was wrong about the cracks. They are not shallow. These are pictures of the outside and inside, showing the cracks go all the way through (I only show one side, but there are cracks all the way through on both sides). The cracks are so tight though, I couldn’t even get a fingernail in them. The only way I can think to fill them is to actually enlarge the cracks (with a coping saw?) and then fill them. Any suggestions?
