Hey all new to the forum. I just finished these 2 cutting boards and I think they came out pretty good. I am using a boiled linseed oil and beeswax mixture to finish and it seems to be working pretty good. I was hopping for some feedback on the boards as well as some more ideas for finishing products. They are made from maple and walnut. Thanks.

Dick, they are 19 3/4”x 11” x 1 1/4 thick. I made them to scale. They may be a little off scale after some trimming for squareness.
Thanks I’m glad to be here.

Those look great! I have heard that boiled linseed oil is not food safe. I make end grain boards and keep coating with food grade mineral oil until it won’t take any more. Then I coat with a mix of mineral oil and beeswax. Both made by Howard.

I have. Those seem to be unsubstantiated however. It is not as pure of coarse as pure linseed oil as they add a drying chemical however once it is cured there is no data that shows it is harmful to humans. I am looking to turn away from it because of the chemical I do prefer natural products.
I want to start researching making my own oils that could be used.
