This is the start of a holly vessel. When I finished sanding it and left it out overnight, it began to crack. I sprayed water on the tiny cracks and put it in a plastic bag to allow the wood to expand and get rid of the cracks. It has worked and now I just have to slow down the drying process. I'll keep you posted on how that goes.
