One other thought. You said this was pallet wood. Some pallets are treated with chemicals for certain industries. Depending on what it was treated with, the treatment may have had some effect on the characteristics of the wood. For instance, if it was sealed with something while the wood was still green, you may be getting exaggerated movement because the wood still hasn t dried out.

Nice point. Hadnt thought of that.
