It's never good when you have a leaky crack. :D
Urethane doesn't have NEARLY enough solids to take on a void that size. Many have gone before you...epoxy is your answer.

Love the idea of embedding ants in it--sticking with your theme and would make awesome conversation.

It's going to take forever for that poly to dry, and will likely shrink or crack after that. You need epoxy or clear casting resin to do that job.

48,

   Not to worry. The polyurethane all ran out so that is a moot point. I'll be trying again with epoxy next time when I finish a mobile sawing job I'm starting tomorrow that may last up to a week.

polyurethane will do the job. You just can't do it all at once.

It will take 10 years to fill that much with poly.

   Even longer since I have not touched it in the past week due to a mobile sawing job, Honey-do projects (Mowing and weedeating) and an all day trip to the Hillsville Va Flea Market with my son and middle granddaughter today. I did pick up a set of dado blades for $5 and a 2-/2" scraper and a dozen or so blades. Also the lady doing the knife sharpener demo sharpened the straight and serrated blades on my Leatherman. Oh yeah, I picked up 23 aluminum, 3 section plates for future fish fries - no more drooping paper plates for me. My son had a good day selling one gun and trading another for some other military knives and equipment he is confident he can turn a bigger profit from.
