Dining table top crack -oak

We bought this used a couple 3 years ago. For the last while I've noticed this crack. Don't really feel I want to invest time to refinish this. Would like to treat the crack to some extent. Any ideas? My thought would be to mix some sort of glue with some Oak sawdust and carefully pack it in there and wipe the surface clean and see how it goes. Maybe dab some finish of some sort over the top of the repair afterwards? Not a real clampable situation.
It does look like the crack runs full thickness. Thanks, all. :-)

most any fix will be just that, and noticeable to some extent. I have never had luck with the sawdust/glue mixture. my best fixes are: shellac stick melting system, minwax fill pencils (these 2 can be color blended and use a grain marker), or cut it out.


does this have breadboard ends?
how is it anchored to the apron/frame?
recently changed climate, heating system, location?

Thank you for the good ideas about shellac and fill pencils. I can't think of anything in the environment that has changed since we got it.

I watched a couple videos about the Mohawk product and I am impressed. I think I will research that.

+1: These are hard wax sticks that are sold in colors to match your finish. Recommend buying a color darker than your finish. If done well, you won't even see the crack.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

If you don't hide it, flaunt it Put a couple bow-ties in, epoxy the voids and refinish.
