So without the use of a planar, this job was a lot harder than I’m guessing it should be.

Final glue up is showing gaps in my purpleheart/rock maple checkerboard cutting board.

I’m clamped this thing to hell, so there is no way I can clamp it more.

My question is, can I fix this? I don’t want bacteria etc falling in there and making the board unsafe.

Thoughts?

You can fill the gaps w/ epoxy resin.

You could dry fit and use a hand plane when needed. Cutting boards must be perfect.

Bondogaposis, must it be a food grade? I’ve got various 2 part clear epoxies.

Russell, I definitely see that now. I just bought my first hand plane as well as tried tuning it. Didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. LOL Need a ton more practice.

I’m not sure if they make food grade epoxy but the stuff is pretty inert when it is cured. Can’t be any worse than Titebond which is not food grade either.
