I made a few Charcuterie Boards. One is bird’s-eye maple, one is from a live-edged regular maple board and the last one was from a chunk of Sycamore. I sanded them down with a small hand-held sander and then hand-finished with sandpaper.
I polished them down with a food safe oil( unfortunately mineral oil is considered food safe!). The nutraoil is heated with beeswax in a double boiler and a tin can…4 parts oil to one part beeswax. I whipped it (off the heat) with a chopstick and it turns into a creamy paste wax. Each were polished with a lint free cloth and then the paste was reapplied a couple of times.
