Thanks for all your replies. I am familiar with the properties of the various Titebond glues. In rereading my question, I realized that I hadn't phrased my main question properly. I apologize for that. I know that both II or III will work with cutting boards and, once dry, both are stronger than the wood. My main concern, for the board that I'm currently making, which is mostly end grain maple, is that, when II and III dry, they're different colors. II is yellowish and III is a light brown. If any of the joints aren't perfect, a thin line of the dried glue may show. If this occurs on adjacent edges they will be different colors. But, would this make a difference once the board is oiled? I'd prefer not to have to go out and buy another bottle III, which I rarely use, just to finish this one board. Then again, if it will make a difference if the joints aren't perfect, I'd hate to waste about $30 worth of wood for cost of a bottle of III. Again, i'm sorry i didn't ask this originally.
