Cracking is caused by temperature changes and moisture.
Another cause of the occurrence of cracks may be the use of wood that is not properly dried. All wood must be dried very slowly and some types are more prone to cracking during drying than others, and also it is important that the cutting of the wood is done correctly.
These cracks can be filled and masked with epoxy mastic wood two components.
