Alcohol Fatality?

>I had a small box of cherry soaking for about 24 hours. The wood was spindle orientation with a glue block on each end which was affixed with 5 min expoy. The first thing I noticed was the blocks fell off. Then I noticed that the lid was in two pieces, cracked along a growth ring that had allot of sap. The walls where about 3/8"+ thick.

It was a clean break, I should be able to glue it back on.

The three other "spindles" I've soaked are ok.
