    What did you use to finish it?

      Hi Richie,

      The finish on this board was mineral oil and paraffin wax. What you do is apply 3 or 4 really heavy coats of mineral oil. You Have applied enough coats, when you can see signs of the oil on the alternate face of the board. The final step is to apply a mineral oil paraffin wax blend. To do this, you melt the wax in warm oil, and then wipe it onto the board. when it cools and starts to congeal, you wipe off the excess.
