I have been using General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish for my CB’s. I love the look it leaves and the ease of use but can’t stand the smell of it. I purchased some food grade mineral oil and was given some pure beeswax from a friend. I strained the wax and let it set up. I have started selling a good bit of these and think the more natural/organic finish would be better for the people buying them from me
Couple of questions to the folks using both of these to finish boards
1. Do you mix the two ( specific ratio?) and apply when it is warm? If so, do you just reheat and apply with left over mixture? I usually do the top and then about an hour or so do the bottom.
2. How often does the mixture need to be done or is just a touch up coat of mineral oil sufficient for the board periodically?
Any additional info would be greatly appreciated
