I make numerous cutting boards of different sizes and finish them with mineral oil. By using this simple rack, I dip the board in the pan and place it on the rack. If I only have one board to dip, I’ll dip it, place the rack on the pan and put the board on the rack. If I’m doing serveral boards at a time, I’ll place the rack on a cookie sheet, dip the boards and place up to 4 on the rack. Then drain the oil back into the pan.

Beautiful!

Do you heat the oil or the board first or just use them at room temperature?

I have never heated the oil before, but with the heat in the shop right now it has to be pretty warm. I think I’ll drop a probe in the oil and see what the reading is.

Have your say...
