    As far as maintenance the mineral oil treatment will work, but a mixture with bees wax will be better.
    here is the recipe to make it at home

    1 cup (240 ml) pharmaceutical grade mineral oil (inexpensive and available at drugstores, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.)
    2 ounces (57 g) pure beeswax
    heat the wax till it is melted, use double boiler, then add the mineral oil stir well pour in w/e container you want to store it in and use when cool. It will turn whitish when ready to use.

    Here is the link to the full process

    i make the same thing for my blocks, but also use it for my vulcanite pipe stems.

    got the board out as soon as I got home and BethAnne thought I was going to make dinner on it.

    took a while to convince her that it would be better to oil it properly and wait till tomorrow.

    she loves the board too.

    I'll post pics in a day or two (I'm working on a damascus gyuto for Dave to sell that I think will photograph with the board very nicely.)
