That’s a tight miter!

Did you have any problems with the cutting board material swelling around the screws used to hold it in place?

Cheers, Jim

Thnx all.

Lew: After ripping them to fit perfectly in the miter slots and countersinking the screws for attaching to the underside, I did not glue them because they might have swelled a scosh, so I took them back off and hit them very quickly on my 8” HF belt sander, until I got the perfect fit….there is absolutely no play in them. I always give a rub of parafin wax every now n then, but, is slides very easily and it’s true and straight
