 Re: Grain Pattern and Cracks...

I would guess that the crack will normally run with the grain. The grain separates the wood fibers naturally . Ever try chopping wood across the length of a log? It's pretty hard to do. But in order for a crack to become a crack (and not just a streak in the outer surface of the clarinet) the separation has to reach the bore. And the grain streaks on the inside of the bore do not necessarily match up to the outside of the bore. If they did then I suspect a lot of clarinets would be cracking.

Just my 2 cents.
