    In that heat from routing/drilling is typically what cracks it, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it won't survive the oven. Likewise it's probably a little bit dense to soak up much if any resin.

    So it is probably the application of any heat that causes cracking because of high oil content? Ie sanding, router etc?
