so far my favorite cutting board, it was to replace the in-cabinet plywood cutting board that was beyond trashed lol
walnut and cherry and butcher block oil, only because i couldnt recall what the wood whisperer said was the same but cheaper..lol

Most of the mineral oil you get at the drugstores is good for seasoning cutting boards but it is so thick it takes forever for the board to absorb it, depending on to what grit you sanded. I usually sand to 220 so I like to use a mineral oil that has a lower viscosity, so it is thinner and absorbs faster. General makes a “Butcher Block Oil” that is thinner than the drugstore kind, and considerably more expensive (about 8 bucks a bottle as opposed to 2 or 3). I buy my mineral oil from a commercial vendor by the gallon, and they have a large selection of viscosity’s. I buy a gallon of thick, a gallon of thin and after it all shakes down its a little cheaper than the drugstore. I split it with my friend that owns a cabinet shop…he likes to do cutting boards also. As far as mineral oil as a laxative you have to swallow at least a couple tablespoons full of it to have that effect on you. Once it soaks into the board, it bleeds out a little but not enough to have that effect on you!

If you end up with “thick” Mineral Oil , just warm it up and it soaks it right in.
WalMart only carries the “thin” stuff in my neck of the woods , but I have seen different weights in drug stores.
It is also used as a moisturizer.
It’s not going to hurt you : )
