If anything, I’d be worried about what appears to be and end grain to end grain joint toward the bottom. I’d be worried even if I used TBIII.

As far as cutting meat, the fact wood is worse than plastic is kind of a myth. Although I wouldn’t cut meat on any species of oak, wood has naturally occurring anit-bacterial properties; plastic does not. The bacteria will get into the pores in wood, but won’t live long. Plastic will develop “pores” after being nicked up time after time and harbor bacteria – however won’t be able to kill it on it’s own.

My wife has a pig cutting board that was her grandfathers. We don’t use it because it’s pretty beat up, but I think it’s time I make her one. Where did you get the pattern?
