    Cutting board - repair or toss?

    The only food-safe oil I know of (aside from oils made of food, such as olive oil, which people say can leave a rancid fragrance as they age in your chopping board) is pure mineral oil.

    Cutting Board Question

    I use a slice of tamarind tree that I brought home (to the UK) from Thailand. I slipped it into my wife's hold luggage while she wasn't looking :O) It's way too high on the Janka scale but nevermind, it works for now. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I keep mine from drying out by treating...

    Just finished up my first cutting board

    So you bought bits of gum tree on Gumtree. Nice. Maybe that's why the service was originally set up...? [emoji4]
