I have to make some fairly substantial cutting boards out of maple and also ash. I don't want the glue ups to open up and was wondering what the proper MC should be. The maple is reading 13% and the ash is about 11%. I was thinking I should have them both under 10%, but am wondering if it would be better to put them in a warm place and try to get it down to say 6 or 8%
I am doing my glueups out of 5/4 stock. What'cha all think - biscuits, dowels or straight edge gluing. Also would gorilla glue rather than Titebond II be better for this application?
