JBrow: Good idea, and something I have wondered about. That is, the moisture in the glue swelling the fibers of the wood I have so carefully flattened with precision swelling things during glue up. However, the chef said that he has raised glue lines, not depressions. Seems odd on an end grain board where changes in the thickness dimension should be minimal with moisture content. It does sound like there is something about the glue creeping from the joint, although I have never seen this myself. I have always used “good old” TB2 for my boards.
