What I’ve done with similar cracks is to first apply masking tape around the perimeter of the crack or check. This is to limit how far the epoxy spreads and to reduce the amount of sanding that you will have to do later. Next mix up the oak flour and 5 minute epoxy and apply it over the voids. Now cover the epoxy with a piece of waxpaper. Put a caul over the waxpaper and clamp the caul to your good piece of wood. The clamping pressure will force the epoxy/saw dust mixture into the voids.
