Check

July 26, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Splits at or near the end of a board. A check is a naturally occurring lengthwise separation between wood fibers parallel to the grain of the grain of the veneer of a plywood panel. It occurs normally in solid or laminated wood products exposed to weather and can be expected on non-overlaid veneered panels, even when the panels are finished with paint or stain.
