Gluing End Grain (cutting board)

First off, this is NOT an end-grain cutting board (I know the title is somewhat ambiguous). This is a long-grain cutting board that needs to be connected at the end-grain.

I know this is the weakest way to glue something, so I want to know what will be sufficient. The board will be 20 inches long and 15 wide, with four 5-inch segments joined together (3/4 inch thick). Will just glue be sufficient? Should I cut a slot lengthwise and put some wood in there (like an elongated biscuit)? Pegs? What's the best way to join these boards and get the necessary strength?

Depending on how thick it is, if 1 1/2-2 inches Titebond III would probably hold it, but splines would look cool too

Splines! That's the word I was looking for. It's only 3/4 inches thick, so I'll probably want to do splines then.

Yeah I would ant something to reinforce the joints if they are 3/4 thick

And I am glad I could jog your memory, it fades with age LOL
