Air check in scroll wood

Recommended Posts

Depends on how far that goes into the wood and if it will be eventually cut out by the end and how much you otherwise like that piece of wood for the neck (grain, figure etc)..  If it was just a ho humm piece of wood I may reject it right out (the check being one of a list of undesirable qualities that make the decision for me).  If I really liked that wood, i would try to salvage it by thoughtful layout etc to see if I could make it work, knowing i may find more problems as i got into it

If I did decide to use it for a scroll (and not for rib stock for a model that allows for nondescript wood), I would orient the checks -- assuming as Peter suggests they don't progress too far into the block once you've trimmed to the minimum acceptable length --, to be on the scroll end and then glue and clamp them.  Far better to have that weakness on the non-business end.
