Wood Checking?!?

Recommended Posts

I have a minor problem with some maple I have been siting on fo a while. While Im not to concerned with this piece in particular, I AM worried about the rest of my stash. I keep my wood upsstairs in my house along with all the rest of my gear, temp/humidity controlled. I brought a piece of maple out to my garage, and left it sit to adjust on my workbench. It sat for a couple of days when it started to check right down the middle. It was at less than 6% moisture content when I first got it about a year ago, and still is acording to my meter. The waether has been fairly stable he whole time it was in there. Did I do something wrong, or should I chalk it up to a bad piece? Like I said Im more concerned with the bookmatched figured maple top I have sitting upstairs.
