I’ve not had good luck turning blanks that look like that and I have not had much luck using CA to repair it either. The cracks are pretty big so maybe you can get enough glue in there to hold it together. Chances are you will probably find that even if it does not explode while hollowing, the cracks will widen as it dries further. Personally, I would turn it a little smaller to see whether the cracks continue or not. If nothing else use it as practice and keep adding glue into the cracks as you go. Just make sure that you wear a face shield and clear the room as you turn it.
