Hi Guys & Gals, I do have a very good question, what is the best way to Finnish a cutting board and what type of product should one use.

mineral oil. Soak it on until you see it seeping through the board and then do the other side, wipe it off and it’s good to go. Minwax also makes a “Salad Bowl” finish which can be found at the BORG, it is also pretty good.

I’ve found general finishes salad bowl finish works very well. Mineral oil is also a good finish. Don’t buy the butcher block oil sold by the big box stores but just get the mineral oil sold at most pharmacies. It’s much cheaper. A good video for cutting boards and he includes the different finishing process he uses. Worth watching!

You can get some little bottles of mineral oil to sell with the cutting boards, that goes a long way I hear to a satisfied buyer.
