Part of last weeks woodscore, was was 4 pre laminated boards, that seemed perfect for cutting boards. After looking a little further/cutting them down, I see many cracks in the joints. My question is what’s the best way to fill these cracks? I’m using Watco butcher block oil on them.
Thanks for any help!

one concern i would have if you did not glue these up, is whether a waterproof glue was used. This is critical for a cutting board application.

As far as gaps, you can fill them with a glue/wood dust mixture. If they are larger, you could shave pieces of matching wood and carefully glue them into the gaps.

Why not rip them apart along the glue lines then re-glue them?
