Nicholas – sorry to be that way but I work with a couple of mills and they are not big fans of white oak for this reason. After cutting the flitch, they let these air dry for over a year before they put them in the kiln so they don’t check and they dry thoroughly and evenly, otherwise they don’t dry correctly. It also adds to the cost per bf.
