I have never put a piece of pine in a cutting board, and never will. Too soft. And I know of no finish that will prevent the abuse that a cutting board may take, like for instance very sharp knives…

Think of your wood as the foundation of what you are building. No finish you can put on will hold if the foundation below it is soft and prone to movement, save for a plate of glass, steel, or some other hardened material in the proper thickness to withstand the application and take the pine out of the equation.
