Over the years I’ve made a few long grain cutting boards. On almost every one of them there has been seperation between some of the strips of wood. Most of this seperation has occured at the outside of the boards, the edge strips. Not all the way down the length of the board but at one end or the other.
I go to great lengths to mill the wood properly. All of the pieces are square and straight. This is especially true now that I own a jointer.
It’s very annoying to get the oooohs and aaaaahs when I give them as gifts and then find that a little while I’m getting seperation again.
I’d appreciate any advice or feed back on this issue…...thanks for your consideration.
