I know you have had this question before, I am going to make some cutting boards and have been told to use a good waterproof glue. What glue would you recommend, titebond III or poly? Do I also need biscuits or will the glue be enough to do the job?

any waterproof glue will work as long as it's a food safe glue, which i believe titebond III is. i'm pretty sure that's what i used on my butcher blocks. you don't need biscuits, the glue will be plenty strong. ;)

Ron,
My cutting board is 2" thick maple, edge glued with titebond II. It was the oven cutout from an island I made 10 years ago. We use it every single day, wash it, abuse it, seldom oil it, and have never had a de-lamination problem at all. Just jointed faces edge glued. The island's still good, too.
