I have been making a few end grain cutting boards, but keep running into the same issue. I spend a lot of time sanding the surface. Once it is glassy smooth, I start applying the mineral oil. However, even after a good serving of oil, the first time the board gets wiped down with a wet rag, the end grain fibers swell up and the board is rough. I usually just give it another sanding and oil. That cleans it up. Does anyone have any techniques that will prevent the additional sanding and oiling? Just trying to make it more efficient.
