Checking, not splitting.

It was there all along and when you milled the lumber, you released surface tension and the cracked widened.

I don t think there s anything you could have done to prevent it.

It seems everyone has come to roughly the same conclusion…improperly kiln dried lumber…This was my first time buying from this guy, but I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t something I did before I say I’m never buying from him again.

Is it true that I would not have been able to see any of this checking while milling it? only after it was glued up did the checking become apparent…

Thanks for the input.
