Wow, glad this popped to the top. I’m planning on making some end grain cutting boards and I researched the various glues and chose Titebond III because it had a Type 1 rating. I wasn’t sure if it was rated safe for food so I was going to look into that but now I don’t have to.

I jumped on the Gorilla Glue bandwagon too when it first came out but have since fallen off. Get it on your hands and they’re brown for days, or on anything else. Wearing gloves my hands sweat and they’re dripping by the time I take the gloves off. And, last but not least, it’s not that great. I made a bird feeder a bunch of years back with it because it was so good. Even sealed it with a marine rated urethane. The glue joints eventually failed. No advantage to it. I’m going to try Titebond III on the next one.
