the glue surfaces should get a good sanding – especially if there is any kind
of finish on the former show (customer use) side. If it was a counter top in its former life,
there is no telling what it is on it . . . so you must remove or at least abrade
all gluing surfaces prior to cutting into strips.

do you know the history of the panel ???

after enlarging your photo – I see it has an edge strip – - – -
are you sure this panel is solid wood strips and not a comopisite material with the wood edge ??
