As I have mentioned, I have some kiln dired wough cut lumber from a
flooring manufacturer. I sotred the boards on concrete blocks in a
little crawl space area nect to my garage, It is under my dryer vent
hose area. (Which leaks a little). I looked under there today and I
noticed the ends of mose boards are splitting. They may have been like
this when I got them I dont know. They are only an inch or two down the
length of the board. Are these boards still good or will they continue
to split even after I build something out of them and stain them?
White oak splits along the rays pretty easily. You've got it somewhere
dryer than where it was, apparently, and have either reopened or begun new
Store wood where you intend on using it. Oak with checks that stay closed
only in the damp is "art," to be looked at, not wood to be used.
