Breadboard table top finish fix

Recommended Posts

about a year ago I posted a question regarding what happens to a breadboard end when a film finish is applied and the core inevitably expands and shrinks with the weather.   WelI got my answer.  I've attached a picture of the core / breadboard joint out toward the ends of the breadboard where only screws are holding the breadboard and where the core has the maximum movement ( center 4" was glued so no issue).  

I 'm trying to figure out a fix.  This was a thick finish of 5 coats of sprayed EnduroVAR.  I'm thinking about sanding down about 2 coats and re-spraying a think coat of EnduroVAR.  Any other suggestions?  What could prevent this in the future?

I'm inexperienced with this problem, but after you refinish, could you cut the joint with a marking knife to separate the finish on the two pieces of wood?

Knife cut the joint using a straightedge . Sand then mask the  breadboards, finish  let dry etc then mask the center and finish etc. they need to be separate and able to move .
