I made these from a design by Nick Ferry on youtube. Wood is Peruvian Walnut, finished with mineral oil.

Looks a little dull in places, i think where end grain is exposed on the curves.

Any feedback or suggestions on a better way to do a food safe finish would be much appreciated! any way to shine it up now that oil is soaked in?

Thanks!

I finish my cutting boards with board butter. It is essentially 4 parts mineral oil and one part bee’s wax. I make it by the gallon or so and put it in Altoid’s sized tins for giveaways with each of my cutting boards and cheese boards. Makes a great finish and easy to apply and reapply as neccessary.

Thanks BigMig!

I used a band saw to cut them.

Check out Nick Ferry’s video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQKyH21sDyM&t=3s.

I don’t have the sanders he has so I glued sandpaper to a paint stick to sand in between, and put a drum sanding bit in my drill press.
