      That's going to be a great piece/ O sure the crack goes away. Is there someway to add some more glue and clamp it for a few days.?
      There's a product from Woodcraft store called Quick wood. It is a two part putty. You could use. It would be a shame if the crack gets bigger. Good luck. I really like both the smaller Indian and the big one. Ginny

        Good luck. That sure is a handy looking carving arm. Did you make it yourself? Can never have to many jigs for this, that, and the other.

          I was more intregued by the carving arm than was worried about the open joint. I would finish it and fill the gap if necessary. I have found that they usually go away during carving if you left enough wood in the roughout.

          Let us know and give us some better photos of the arm. Would be extremely interesting.
