I just realized that 4 of my 5 studs I bought have cracks in them. I caught most of them before cutting so I can return them, but one I already trimmed and was installing it when I saw it...i don't know if its a check or a shake (been reading up on it) but its not all the way through. This wall is just framing for a bathtub, so no load on it. Is it ok to use this? I decided it wasn't going to be the middle stud since I have to attach the plumbing in teh middle for the shower head and faucet, but still I want to be sure...getting a little OCD right now
any suggestions or advice?
thanks in advance
