Some ideas  to keep wood from checking
These were shared with me by old school Bulgarian, now deceased

Avoid wood containing the pith ( center of tree) if possible
Boil green piece  to be worked in water (55 gallon barrel over camp fire) to relieve tension, then slowly air dry

I hope this is helpful

Mulch with fresh, local, wood chips. they will hold moisture, loosen clay and after some time, provide nutrients. kiln dried shavings are not nearly as good

I lived with NiFe batteries for many years, they are very durable! The voltage range (from below 10 to over 16.5 for a 12 volt nominal set) can be a huge challenge, DC light bulbs and other dc items can easily cook. AC loads through an Inverter are a better option, though the inverter must be compatible with the voltage range to make full use of the batteries.
