>In saw something in one of the threads that made me wonder if there was a problem with reaction wood...I mean as a general rule?

I've cut more than a few blanks out of what is probaly reaction wood...from limbs...and since I occasionally have problems with cracking (especially with my black locust stash) during or just after roughing out a bowl and I wonder if that could be the cause?
