I’ve just finished gluing up a bunch of maple blocks into an end grain cuting board. Unfortunately, the clamps didn’t tighten everything up enough. There are a few small gaps (10-15 thousanths) between some of the pieces. It’s structually sound but I’m afraid that as a cutting board, food or fluids could get in there and be unsanitary.
Anyone have any suggestions on solving this problem? I’ve been thinking of trying to thin out some glue and then wash it onto the surface, kind of like grout to fill in the gaps. I haven’t sanded the top smooth yet so if I can fill the gaps then sand it, I might be able to salvage the project.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
