Hi everyone, I hope I can get a piece of good advice on this one: I’m planning to make a 48x32 coffee table top from the white oak 1” squares glued together with end grain sides up. I already made six square boards (like cutting boards) and now I want to glue them together before the final cut. For the base, I’m going to use 3/8” Baltic birch plywood, which will be hidden under the final edge pieces. What I am worrying about is that the end grain pieces might expend more than 3/8” plywood can hold and the whole piece will be warped. So, finally, the question: should I use Titebond or Gorilla white/yellow glues or a more flexible Polyurethane adhesive for this job? Any input will be appreciated.
