Hey guys, thanks for the input!

Mel: I agree with what you said about not using Oak, however I used white oak which has closed pores because they are filled with crystalline-like tyloses, giving it that extra-heavy weight good outdoor stability. Red oak might be a bad move, however I’ve been using a red oak one (didn’t know it was red oak until recently) for 2-3 years now and it’s in great shape surprisingly enough. We don’t soak it or put it in the washing machine though.

Dave: Thanks much for the input !!

Update, I put a block of scrap from the cutting board into hot water for the last hour or so… when I took it out the glue beads on the outside were DEFINITELY dissolving and getting soft, however the wood itself was still stable and adhered… so my guess is that one or two screw up and things may be fine, however, the more you submerge it, it will eventually fail.
