I’m making a large cutting board 40”x60” using end grain, maple, paduk and walnut. The wood is plenty dry. I plan on making roughly 6 individual cutting boards and then…
1) Glue each cutting board edge wise to make the entire top
I’m using Tite Bond III Glue. And will finish with a beeswax finish to keep daily usage water from getting absorbed.
My question and fear is having it crack over time due to it’s very large size. Will glueing it on edge be enough? Should it also be glued or screwed down to a piece of ply or thin melamine?
