Dawgs, I know that brand, have re-purposed many pieces, if you’re already seeing separations at the glue line you should cut the panel apart at the failing glue line, and re’glue it. Few people understand or respect wood counter-tops, (especially not the way a woodworking Chef does LOL), TOO often a lack of maintenance and care causes these to blow apart at the glue joints. Once you’ve glued it back into a strong panel you can cut your strips & flip them for an endgrain board which is the longest lasting & best type of board for your knives. Be careful though and oil it well, the maple is a light color and some items can stain it pretty deeply, beets, fine chopping of parsley etc.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
