  • Checking on top of staves

    Is it normal for the tops of the staves to crack (check)?

    When the tops of the staves get wet the cracks close up of course, but when not in use the cracks (checking) come right back. Just wondering if this would somehow cause problems over time since this occurs on almost a daily basis, the expanding and shrinking of the wood. Or is this just normal for cedar hot tubs...

    I think it's pretty normal... at least mine does it. I ordered my tub with vertical grain (so end grain at the tops) which probably makes things worse...
