Should I consider sealing the endgrain on the outer edges of this cutting board since there will be only a dowel and no adhesive? I was thinking of using some thinned titebond 3, then letting it dry before I insert the breadboard end. The joint is a snug fit, but I’m concerned water will get into the space and slowly expand the gap. I plan to just use a mineral oil and beeswax finish. Thanks

I give that idea an EXCELLENT rating. Yeah!
