 Re: Grain Pattern and Cracks...
Author: Chris P

The line of grain is the weakest point of the wood, so a stress crack will follow that path no matter what shape it is on the surface as opposed to being a perfectly straight line.

I'm not sure where this whole 'cracks are a straight line' myth has come from and why it's being peddled by people who really ought to know best. This is only going to lead people to believe something that's not always the case and in the worst case for someone to disbelieve a crack following a wavy line is a crack at all.

In this world that seems to be full of fake news, there are still genuine truths if you can see things rationally.
