Here's the before on the cracked one... pretty bad...

And after repairs...

I managed to repair this one using Minwax Wood Filler. After staining it you really have to look to see where the canyon used to be... and to someone who isn't looking for a crack or isn't a carver I don't think it would be noticed. If you have a crack in the wrong spot, give this product a try... sets up pretty quick and can be sanded just like wood... takes stain pretty good too...

Nice! One of your finer tikis in my opinion.
