Sawdust2012… Thanks for your reply.

I, admittedly don’t know enough about wood movement, but I would hope that boards that were used in a bowling alley for 50+ years is mostly done moving…. Especially since it’s been sitting in my shop now for close to two years.

Fingers crossed

I can’t see anything wrong with the technique in the video. The only caveat might be differing expansion and contraction rates with different species, but that is just a guess on my part. I bought a butcher block countertop from Lowe’s to use as a benchtop and have been very happy with it. If it doesn’t work, you are a few steps from several beautiful cutting boards!
