Take your shop bandsaw and cut the sapwood off a cookie. I've never tried it and there will be a shorter tangent chord but I'm guessing it will still crack. That is the radial/tangential shrinkage problem rather than a heartwood/sapwood problem.

I learned something today reading another piece on ERC, the French called it Baton Rouge, red stick.

Which brings to mind the name of another city I learned recently, Chicago came from an indian name meaning place of the wild onions.

yes and they even named a city after it!  :D  some will cut a center out of a cookie and it will be less likely to split.  different woods dry different so the wood structure has to have something to do with it.  the diameter and thickness has something to do with it.
