Trying to waterproof wood is a waste of time. When a tree is growing over 1/2 of its weight is from water inside the wood after kiln drying 10-15 percent is left inside. Any less and the wood is too brittle. Even if it were possible to waterproof the wood it is the water trapped inside that does
The most damage. As temperature altitude and humidity change
Moisture inside expands and contracts

Most of the time there will only be poi changes. But In a few cases I've seen split and cracked stocks
