Excerpt from A Short Installation Guide Of Solid Wood Countertops And Kitchen Islands :
We recommend pre‐drilling the screw holes into the wood countertop, in order to avoid cracks and splits. For the same reason, it is a good idea not to over tighten the screws. The finishing will considerably diminish the extent of such movements, but will not eliminate them altogether. Due to the panel"s laminated structure, the lengthwise movements are insignificant, so the installer should pay attention to the movements occurring across the panel"s width. In order to prevent the development of inner tensions, the holes in the metal fixings should be elongated in the direction of the movements.
