Drying hickory *PIC*

Scott Hurley in N. VA
>I scored some hickory from my insurance man (like a good neighbor...), but I've had fits with it splitting in a circle around the pith (see picture). It's not getting the usual checks, but the pith is falling out. I cut it and sealed the ends as soon as I got it. When it started to split, I went back and sealed the flat sides, but they are still splitting. Even the first bowls I made and soaked in DNA still split just like the picture. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything I can do about it? Thanks in advance.
