Geesh, I meant wood not would :)
Apple wood hasn't cracked on me yet. Sweet Gum did, I learned to apply melted wax to the ends to slow down the drying. Before that I had one that cracked, but it turned out to be a good look. I rounded out the edges along the cracks. I think it looks nice with the crevices, it is a hard would to take stain well.
