So this ash blank sat in the closet for a few years and I pulled it out today while contemplating a build. Yuck...look at that crack...and it goes all the way through the body.
I guess I could maybe fill it somehow...CA? Zpoxy? Might not be aesthetically what I want, may be better off cutting out the good section and finding more ash to glue to. I wanted to dye it, no pore fill, then clearcoat. Maybe even sandblast it.
Anyway, any thoughts on why this may have happened? I know wood sometimes does silly stuff, apparently even when all precautions have been taken. It was supposedly kiln dried. I was stored in a stack of wood...maybe that's not the best idea but I've seen plenty of wood stored this way.
Ok, well someone please come visit my pity party so I'm not so sad and alone
