Yes, wood expands in width but not in length. Trying to confine the movement of an end grain board with a long grain border is the mistake. The fix ix is to make the border end grain as well. You can easily salvage this by cutting off the border. Remember that cutting boards get washed repeatedly so are continually experiencing movement with frequent wet/dry cycles.
