Those could be drying cracks, not uncommon and probably there before you cut to expose them.

In my experience they probably will not grow further. What are you going to use them for? They can be secured with a spline glued in (running across the width of the end grain you show) if that doesn’t impact your project.

Well a crankshaft from a Ford 460 is going to mount between the blocks of wood and a panel of glass is going over the top to make a coffee table. So the cracks are really just a cosmetic issue. Still, they bug me so I ended up filling them with epoxy.

Have your say...
