What would you do? *PIC*

Carole Valentine
>I am working on a piece of cherry that Barry Irby gave me. It has some nice figure in it. As I got almost two thirds into the hollowing process, I began to uncover these ragged cracks. The only sign of any possible trouble opposite it on the outside was the small knot. Is this thing likely to tear itself (and maybe me) apart as I continue? Do you think an epoxy mixture would work or is it possible that the wood will just rip itself away from the epoxy? What would you do?
