Thinner cutting board from a cutting board kit that was on a clearance table at woodcraft.

Sanded to 220 grit, sprayed with water to raise the grain, then sanded to 400 grit. Rounded the edge with a small round over bit and hand sanded the edges to smooth them out. Applied 2 coats of walrus oil about 24 hours apart followed by a coat of walrus oil board wax.

Good selection of woods, giving it a good color.

The wood is now 1/2 thick after a few passes through the planer.

I’ve found I really like the walrus oil board oil, I find it not seeping back out of the boards like mineral oil tended to do on me. The company recommends 1 coat for the most part thought if you want extra protection you can do 2 coats which is what I normally do followed by a coat of the board wax which you let sit for 15 minutes before buffing off. The oil takes 12-24 hours to “dry” before I can wax the boards. I started off with the 8 or 9oz bottle of the oil and after running through a few of those, I’ve bought the larger jug of the stuff. Only thing I noticed when pouring into a plastic squeeze bottle was a clump of soft wax had formed, probably from sitting for a while. I just need to make sure I shake the product well to ensure everything is mixed.

Glad to see someone else using Walrus Oil also! I have used it a few times now on various boards and really like it. I like how well it holds up too. I have one board that we’ve used off and on over the last couple of years that is just now getting to where it needs a new coat of oil.
