    Glue joints and cracks

    So I noticed that the glue joints seem closer together in some parts of the cutting board than in others. I can feel the glue lines when I place my hand on the board. some places the glue seems to be missing and there are small holes in the glue joints. sanding it down would make it smooth however what do I do about the glue? Do I apply more glue somehow? What about the cracks? I'm worried it will get worse. Your help is much appreciated.

    Beeswax should help. I don't recognize your handle, so I don't know who you are or when you bought your board, but I generally do everything I reasonably can to take care of my customers.

    Wood is organic and sometimes moves a bit. It is extremely rare for glue joints to open up, but if it happens, then please call me directly and I'll be happy to make it right.

    I purchased the board Around late October of last year it's holding up well. Just concerned that the glue joints are thicker in some areas and almost invisible in others. I might just be a bit paranoid. I will definitely let you know if it gets worse.
