HELP!!! Cedar cracking on the lathe

Chuck Ludwigsen
>I'm roughing an 11" cedar bowl and I walked away for 10 minutes and came back to numerous cracks. I applied CA to the cracks, anchorsealed the whole thing, stuck a paper bag over it. I have to run an errand.

Should I only rough this bowl or just finish turn it and dry it some other way? Please help, this would is TOO lovely to lose.

Thanks for ANY suggestions.
