Hello all, I was in Lowes the other day and came across some plywood labeled beech fine line, it is edge glued so that the layers show on the top. My wife has been after me to make a cutti g board for her. My question is, the glue they used to mami he it together, would it be food safe to use as a cutting board or should I just glue up my own. I looked an couldn’t find any info on it .
Thanks

When in doubt, DON”T DO IT.

Make your own, it will mean more in the long run.

You can be pretty sure that it is not food safe if it is not intended for that use.

Doubt it. No bigger than a cutting board is you can probably make your own

I had to look…

I have no strong opinion about it, but, I probably wouldn’t use this for a cutting board.

Sorry for digressing, but I’m actually more interested in the wood itself. The Lowes closest to me only sells that “Blondewood” crap. Still not really sure what that is….

Have never seen it before @ lowes? Is not stocked locally, so guess I never will see it. :(

Edge glued beech makes nice cutting board. Just a little softer than hard maple, and is easy on knife edges.
If this really is 1 inch thick solid beech, edge glued; then it could safely be used to make thin cutting boards.
If it is ends up being beech veneer over composite wood core, then do not use it.

Cheers!
