Default Re: Surface Cracks in Cherry Table Top

I've used acrylic paint to color epoxy - it doesn't take much. But I sure wouldn't want to put colored epoxy on a nice table top. It'll be really obvious, regardless of how well you match the color (which will be a challenge). It depends on how big the crack is, of course, but the texture of epoxy will always be different than wood.

Can't you get some unchecked wood, and save the checked stuff for a project that the splits won't matter?
