While you do have to wipe hardening oils off to avoid orange peel, wiping it on and off just as soon as you do is wasteful. People do this with mineral oil on butcher block, for example, and it drives me nuts. Let it soak as much as possible (with a cutting board, just walk away and forget it, letting it soak in), then get rid of the excess.

OH +1 So Much I’m a cheap bastard and with BLO I let it soak until it gets tacky and the cutting boards get left with a good puddle of miracle oil on them for a day or 2. Long grain boards won’t absorb as much, but you’d be surprised how much an endgrain board will soak up.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
