    That sometimes happen as wood ages and drys out. Use a wax wood filler crayon to fill in. Add more than you need use a plastic putty knife to smooth it flat.

    Go to a Home Depot, Lowes, or Any Hardware store an buy a Oak dowel. Not knowing how big the crack is. Trim some slivers of the dowel and push into crack and repeat till crack has filled, then use stain to color then apply clear lacquer to seal and glue. I hope that works for you, or just use the wood fillers. Good Luck Tr.!

    Use wood filler, but try to get one that matches your flooring. I have found wood filler does not stain well.
