I would greatly appreciate some suggestions about how to deal with it.

Some people will never learn anything because they understand everything too soon.

You are probably right about the humidity difference in the drying cabinet. If the crack is directly over the bass bar (which I believe it is), is there any use in removing the top? Is there a good technique for closing the crack if it is over the bar? I don't think there is too much varnish in the crack, since it opened after the varnishing. Will sufficiently thinned hide glue be drawn into such a narrow crack by capillary action? Sorry about all the questions, but I am in unfamiliar territory when it comes to repairs. Thanks again for the help.
