Earlier this year, I made a butcher block about 60″ long by 40″wide. It’s made of 23 pieces of maple 1-3/4″ X 1-3/4″ X 60″ long. As you can tell, the strips run the long dimension. The strips were glued using west epoxy with no fasteners. Right about at the center, a gap is developing between two of the boards. Right now, it’s about 1/64th wide and 2 inches long. I’m concerned it will eventually grow and the top will fall in half. This is the centerpiece of a kitchen, so looking good is important. What would you do to repair it?
