I had a similar issue with some otherwise great red cedar sticks I cut on my brother's place in east Texas. I used structural epoxy and mixed in granules of dark red in once case, and turquoise green in the other. The guys at Woodcraft said that CV glue would have been easier. But they turned out fine, and the color filled cracks just added some character.

You bet. I bought the colored granules at Woodcraft too. They carry lots of colors. I'd bet hobby stores do as well. It's easy to experiment on wood scraps cut from the same stick.

Photos of my recently retired physician's "diamond" willow stick are here (before half a dozen applications of 100% pure tung oil over several months):

The first that I made was for my daughter-in-law who I consider my second daughter.

I made the cedar stick that had the splits filled with epoxy and dark red granules from Woodcraft for a Marine who is fading, cancer is slowing him but he's still fighting on. His son is a championship bull rider and taking his son to the rodeos is his passion. I was in a hurry to get that stick in the mail and failed to take any photos I think, but I'll keep searching.
