Just went through this with some cherry that developed hairline cracks…if the wood you’re working with is carrying a lot of tension (i.e., crotch, burl or curly), you may develop cracks as the tension is released. I’ve also found that I go through this a lot with oak, whether it’s dry (less than 7% moisture) or wet (14-20% moisture).

I used CA glue for the hairline cracks, then sanded those areas to 400. For larger cracks, I fill with colored epoxy…it’s worked well for me.

Hope this helps!
