At the joints I plan either to do a glue/biscuit method, miter bolts, or perhaps both. Anyone have experience with these on butcher block?

Your can t glue it, since it s a cross grain situation. Dominos or a blind spline would work. It s basically a breadboard end and needs to be able to float for seasonal expansion. You can pin it in the back, or front or middle but only one.

If you have a thin back splash you may have to pin at the back of the counter and live with movement at the front and along the joint

This is very helpful, I appreciate it man! I’ll most likely fire out a new post on this one.
