TURNING PROBLEM *PIC*

Jim King-Iquitos,Peru
>I have a bunch of these log slices 2 to 4 inches thick and would like to make bowls and platters out of them. The problem being is that most have a crack in them as this one. Any idea how to turn this without getting knocked out by a flying peice ? All I can think of is gluing a peice of plywood to it and bandsawing it round and I am not sure about that. They are about 24 inches across so the hit would be rather painfull if it came apart.
