Oak checks bad no matter what you do. I've seen where a guy took the big cookies and cut them like a pizza, then when dried, glued them back together. He'd get the growth rings gs lined up pretty good. You could hardly tell it had been cut in pieces. It was a lot of work, time, and space. He could make a lot more money with easier slab projects.I have thought about slabbing a stump and then gluing and screwing some plywood to the underside to try and stabilize the slab but I have never tried it.
