    Default Cutting Board Refurb

    Hi,

    My kitchen cutting board is next on my "to-do" list and wanted some input/advise on which oils/varnish etc. I can use on it once I've finished sanding down it?

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Hi, read something about cutting boards a few years ago, what I do remember is that you cannot use varnishes or normal oils on it. Think a vegetable oil was used.

    I have two teak chopping boards that I have had for about 20 years. I have only used sunflower cooking oil/ olive oil on them and they are still going strong

    Best IMO, on "fresh" wood would be a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil.
    A good friend of mine has been making wooden cutting boards for ages, and is only using this combo, and swears by it.
    I seem to remember, though, it being a bit difficult to get the mineral oil in small quantities, at decent prices...

    You can get "Liquid Paraffin" from Dischem, which I think is a medical/food grade mineral oil.

    I let food grade flax oil or olive oil soak through to the bottom from the top, this is on end grain boards... then I cover the surfaces with a homemade beeswax flax seed oil suspension.
