>Duane, it is difficult to answer your question without seeing the piece but if the inclusion splits the piece I would "stitch it" using a mix of epoxy and soot and sawdust. With this mix you can build bridges to connect the halves or you can fill the entire void. Or depending on the color of the wood you could fill it with turquoise or brass filings insted of the sawdust and soot. There are many other ways to deal with it too.
