Topic tags/keywords: cutting board oil food grade odorless stain fast drying stain

I’m a woodshop teacher and have used Boiled Linseed oil for finishing our projects. I like it because it drys fast, protects the wood, and enhances the look of the projects. Recently we’ve been making Cutting Board and Nut Crackers and every food grade oil I have tried on these projects doesn’t dry very fast or at all. When put on paper there are stains left from the projects. Students are also telling me when they are put on table clothes they leave a stain. Is there a faster drying food grade oil? Also my students are complaining that the Boiled Linseed Oil smells so if I can find a fast or faster drying food grade oil that is odorless I’d like to use that my other projects as well. Thanks in advance for your help.
