One thing to keep in mind- varnish and poly harden on the surface of the wood. I don’t relish the idea of eating plastic in my salad. They both will chip if you use ‘em on cutting boards….maybe it’ll add that extra flavor that will make people ask you- “What’s the secret ingredient, Steve?”(LOL) I think Marc is basically making a thin wiping varnish. I prefer to use mineral oil or coconut oil as a wipe-on for my cutting boards. Both are food safe and don’t go rancid…..........Wes
