Had an experience last week with some 3/4" five ply red oak lumber. Found that it split near the end grain easily and smelled like Shi%t while cutting it. (Smells bad!!!) Lumber didn’t seem that dry and was only a few months old. What’s the cause of the smell and the towards the edges of the lumber splitting more easily when screwing into the end grain? How is the construction of this plywood different than say a CDX grade of 3/4" five ply which became these noticeable differences?
