Jonathan – it’s a good question. Wood shrinks across the grain much more than along the grain. I doubt that your posts will be pulled together enough that you could see. Splitting is possible, but I think it’s not very likely – cedar is frequently used in outdoor construction because of it’s stability as well as weather resistance. Maybe someone who does decks and arbors can weigh in on your question …
