OK so I am finishing my sanded end grain and long grain cutting boards but getting a dull appearance once completed. Here is what I currently am doing:
1) 2 coats of liberally applied mineral oil. Each coat is applied and then I come back about an hour later to wipe off the excess oil. I Leave 24 hours between coats and dry in open air.
When the boards are done they just have very little “shine”, particularly the end grain boards. I don’t want to use anything that is not “food safe” but would like a bit more luster. Anyone have ideas or suggestions based on your own experiences?
