Hi my name is Don and I have a question about stopping wood checking/cracking. I have 8x8 treated wood posts for my porch. This is a new build and they have been installed for 10 months. I am see some large cracks and I would like to know if there are any additional ideas other than wood filler or glue to stop them. In my past I have drilled holes in metal to stop the propagation of the cracks. Would this work?
