Instead of worrying about the splits and cracks, incorporate it into the design. It will look far better then a bunch of boards glued together. It will give it more character. If you go into an antique store and find an old six board chest, it will have some cracks. It looks like it is mostly by the knots anyways. I really like the look of the wood, the chest will be a beauty.
