What did you seal it with to keep the aromatic cedar “aroma” from the foodstuff ?

I used food grade mineral oil for the finish.

Looks beautiful, but it might have a short life as a cutting board, what with cedar being so soft and all.

I’ve often wondered if cedar is safe for food use. And also of what to do about the aromatics seeping into the food being prepared. That is a beautiful piece of wood!

I think that cedar is probably foodsafe, since I’ve eaten plenty of (delicious) cedar-smoked salmon in my time. It might well affect the flavor though.

So far it seems to work fine, no complaints on odor or flavor.
