Thanks all. I picked up a bottle of Howard’s CBO and will give it a try. If it works out I’ll but more at a discount online. I also grabbed a bottle of the conditioner to test out. If I do sell, being a bit “showy” might be a good thing. If it were just for me I’d pass as I’ve never applied wax to any of our regularily used boards that I made 20 years ago and they look great to this day, but quite honestly can’t recall what I used as a finish on them. Maybe mineral oil, but that was before I had kids and lost my memory, :)

I’m all for keeping it simple, thanks ChefHDan. Love the idea of sending out the small sample bottles with each board, thanks CaptainKlutz. I’ll try your other suggestions as well, TY again.

therealSteveN, where would you suggest I purchase the waxes? And I’m assuming using two pans to make up a double boiler would be fine.? Lastly, if stored, would I need to melt it down before each use? In-other-words will it solidify?

When I have a moment I’ll give straight (food grade) mineral oil and other suggestions a try as well to see what works best for me.

Thanks again for all,
