In another thread someone said absolutely do no use Titebond 1. I used original titebond to make several cutting boards about 25 years ago. There have been no problems. What was used before Titebond 111 came along.

My first ones were glued with Elmer's wood glue.

As long as you wash and dry it quickly it will last forever.

I would guess some of the old butcher blocks from 1800s used hide glue. Again as long as it does not stay wet or get warm more than a few minutes it should be fine.

+1 And gets a coat of MO/beeswax or other board treatment more than once a year will also keep things going well.
