I just finished assembling a butcher block using titebond III and then finished it with mineral oil. It just occured to me that I am not sure if there are any effects on the glue adhesion with meineral oil penetrating the wood around the glue. Also, any health issues using titebond on a food preparation surface?

Once cured, the glue won’t be effected by mineral oil or any other type of finish. It is probably food safe too.
I wouldn’t add it to my soup but even uncured it is mostly non toxic.

On the Wood Whisperer cutting board episode I’m pretty positive he used Titebond III and recommended mineral oil as a finish. So I think your cool.

TB-3 is food safe glue and once the glue cure the mineral oil will not be effected.

Have your say...
