It'll split. I helped my cousin last weekend split some oak that big on a splitter about that size.

Or latex paint.

They will otherwise dry too fast and split.

Actually, oak is a poor choice for a cutting board.

red oak is an open grain wood, it has holes that go all the way thru it. that would allow juices to absorb into it and stay there. that's why it is NOT used for curing booze. white oak is used for that, as it is a closed grain wood.

other closed grain woods, hardwoods, include walnut, maple, and cherry. all good choices for a cutting board. you could also use white oak for a cutting board, or parts of one, as i have done before.

I asked Tom about the tree, here's his reply

At a friends house. Old age - mostly dead. Cut before it decided to fall on its own.

Tom's splitter

Splitter is powered by a 2hp electric motor with a 2 stage pump and a 27" stroke cylinder.
Easy to start in cold weather, just plug in to 220V and turn on.
