Thanks for your reply; yes, it was only the white crack we had objection to, and then only for the longterm. We like the rustic look. company guy was just here and touched it up so it's not visible. Showed me that it was only on the panel, couldn't spread past that, so my guess is we won't have to deal with it. Company also mentions that when heat comes on in winter there could be small areas that crack slightly that we can fill ourselves with the stain he left us.
Only thing i question is that when he applied touchup stain to a few bald spots on the bed drawers--and the cracked headboard--he was applying stain over wood that was already lacquered. (he didn't use a touchup brush, but took a rag and applied stain to the entire area then sprayed 'spray-zit' over it.) How can you apply stain over already lacquered area? He says no problem, and he seemed to know his stuff, but.....
