I am looking to go another round in making a black walnut end grain cutting board. I am looking for advice on how to join (2) 12 inch boards together once I am done.
I know it’s an odd size, but I want a cutting board 24”W x 36”L and need to do it in (2) separate 12 inch wide sections so it will fit through my 13 inch planer. Is it safe to just glue and clamp the ends together that would have normally been glued together at the end after the planing?
Or is it better to plane the wood strips originally and not plane once it is put together? I’d just have to sand away then. I like planing once everything is together, but I end up with (2) 12”W pieces that need to join.
Any suggestions? Thanks!!
