    There is a product called Salad Bowl Finish available at Lowes or HD that is certified food safe and is designed for just that.

      I think that Behlen's makes a salad bowl finish. I like Boos oil, which is made for butcher blocks and is totally nontoxic. Also smells nice.

        Mineral oil is a popular and very cheap product that is perfectly fine to use on items that come into contact with food. It's primary use is as a laxative and it's available in the pharmacy section of your local grocery store.

        Mineral oil is a non-drying oil, so while it will soak into the wood, it doesn't ever cure like standard wood finishes do. This makes it easy to restore, just wipe some more one when the board looks dry. But beware that until it soaks into the wood completely, it will still look & feel wet and may leave residue on any other surfaces it contacts. It's totally harmless, so nothing to worry about.

          Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

          Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
