Has Achieved Nirvana
Sorry, I missed your hail. I’ve been working and we have a houseguest from France for a couple weeks.
I love Lane, but I’m not an expert by any means.
I wonder what sort of glue is used to laminate butcher block. I would suspect that piece has been left in an unfavorable environment - maybe moist and not temperature controlled to cause it to delaminate. It could easily be reglued with some clamps to hold it but I don't know what adhesives are considered food compatible.
I recently saw this web page on installing a segment of butcher block in a kitchen counter. I thought the approach was very sound.

Great tips on that blog, Big Al. I posted his pizza oven review in another thread.
I'm not sure what happened to the butcher block I saved. The former owner said it was part of a kitchen table but he may have had it stored in the garage or in the basement. The glue is definitely failing, as is evidenced by the multiple pieces that have fallen apart.
Three of the sides have the top edge rounded over, but the fourth has no roundover. I'm thinking what I have was cut from a larger table.
It was a work table rather than something used for food prep. It has some kind of varnished finish that would need to be removed regardeless of what I used it for, as it's not in great shape.
Definitely a project, but within my skill set, I think.
