>I have a lovely curly peice of maple 1" x 1" x 18". Was thinking of using it to make a segemnted collar around a walnut bowl. The walnut block is dry but could there still be enough movement that the segmented collar could crack or cause the bowl to crack?
I understand collars are generally aligned with the bowl grain but in this case the collar will be all long grain.
