turning walnut

Mark Paulley
>Hello all,
Do you guys and gals have any trouble turning walnut? For some reason I seem to get these hair line checks after I have almost completed the bowl for HF. They always seem to appear. Most of the wood has been cut for a while but it still has some mositure.
The thickness of the piece is in the 1/4"-3/8" range

Just a bit frustrated with this wood.
Any help greatly appreciated
Mark
