I think the check became a crack because of the normal drying of the wood. Could be because of the move
from your shop to a house with a different environment, or just the lower moisture of the air during winter
months that is normal. You could try to fill the crack with epoxy, but I would not try to pull the crack shut as
that would cause stress on other parts of the wood and create new problems. Just my opinion, and I have
been known to be wrong.
