There are other finishes out there other than mineral oil(not really a finish) Folks always think that poly is not food safe and I know this is not the prevailing thought about poly,but if you think about it the only ingredients in poly that’s harmful is it’s thinner once it dry’s you good to go,.Folks talk about and swear that poly will be cut off when chopping on a cutting board but that really doesn’t wash either because most of the finish is in the grain(if thinned down and you do not apply 10 coats of poly) and if a very very small about ends up in your food,it would not be harmful.
