Re: Pressure/Stress cracks in finished dining table
That is an edge joint that is separating not a board splitting. It is generally a sign of poor joining and unstable wood. With proper joining the wood would split before the joint separated. Splitting is usually caused when the wood shrinks but the top is fastened to the apron to tightly. I would send it back and go to another store.
