Wood Stocks

Wooden stocks seem to be somewhat out of favour these days. In part because of preceived lack of reliability in changing climatic conditions.
I am wondering what is the actual incidence of faliure(point of inpact change) and is it possible to produce a wood stock that will be stable for the life of the rifle. There appear to be many more variables inherent in a timber stock as opposed to a synthetic stock, such as type of timber, grade, grain, country grown, aging, finishing(oil, polyurethane). Probably many more. So far the subject seems to be a bit loose and may be defaming these stocks unfairly. Does anyone have any useful information on this?
