I think the emphasis should be not on improbable catastrophic events but preserving a tropical hard wood with tendencies to split and crack with vagaries in temperature and humidity. I think young pipers, those that play for prolonged periods in difficult, hot, climates, should understand, that the best way to keep their pipes healthy is to swab them out ,oil them, then maintain a tropical hardwood climate say

55-60 per cent humidity. For Godsake I get better instructions on my hardwood floors(Dave Atherton is exempt here)
