Fantastic board.. nice use of grain orientation,...

Paul regards Food Safe Mineral Oil… Available at your local pharmacy… also known as paraffin oil… major ingredient in laxatives… fun stuff but really works well with cutting boards…makes the color and grain pop and reduces glue lift..
Ok glue lift is the distinct ridge you feel between pieces in a glued up board.
