If anyone has been following my cutting board posts, first, I’m sorry. I’m sure you are very much over it by now. But this has the very real potential to be my last one.
These end grain boards (walnut, cherry, hard maple) have gotten two coats of straight salad bowl finish (not thinned). They are keeping their color nicely after the second coat, and I checked to ensure that water is beading nicely on the surface, which it is. Is that it? Other ways I can test to see if another coat is warranted? I don’t want to build a film so I am wary of putting on too much.
If that’s it, I may hit them lightly with 400 grit to smooth them out and then call it good.
