I would urge you to use a more durable finish than beeswax and mineral oil. While it is great for the wood in cutting boards it does little to provide protection. Once you put wax an oil in wood you wont be able to apply another finish.

my step brother has been using nothing but mineral oil for the last few years on his counters without any issues. he needs to re apply fairly often but counters are still in great shape. I read up on this and what many suggested was oil and then a coat of beeswax mixed with oil. I used this on a couple of my existing wood counters and so far It seems to do the trick. what would you recommend for a finish ?
