Topic tags/keywords: question

Anybody know how to get rid of the rotten frog odor it puts off, while keeping the wood food safe? The pieces that I have applied a furniture finish to lost their smell, but if I want to keep the wood in its natural state and eat off of what is created from it, what can be done? I tested dang near everything on scrap cuts: vinegar, baking soda, ALE8-1, you name it. Any suggestions besides, “Don’t work with Kentucky Coffee Tree?” Thanks for any feedback.

Shellac is food safe and will cover odors really well. It is also easy to repair/redo when needed.
