Cutting boards try - Need your advise

Hello everybody !

I've make some cutting boards with some scrap, but I need some advise of the LJ's community:
- which finishing I can use? I want a finish that can be use for an alimentary use (Wooh, many "use" in this sentence …)
- and what did you think of this wood's combination ?

Here's the 3 cutting boards :

--- First one---
Brown Rectangle Wood Hardwood Wood stain


Brown Wood Orange Flooring Floor


From the left to the right, I've used : Teak, a "red African wood" that I can't identify, and iroko.

--- Second one---
Brown Rectangle Wood Hardwood Wood stain


Brown Light Wood Rectangle Orange


From the left to the right : "red African unidentified wood", iroko, sipo, "red African …", sipo, etc …

--- Third one---
Brown Rectangle Wood Wood stain Hardwood


Brown Wood Flooring Floor Rectangle


From the left to the right : Teak, "red African unidentified wood", iroko, etc …

For the finish, I've use this oil : "Oil for teak" (not sure of the translation). This is danish and tung oil based.
Hand Tin Ingredient Material property Alcoholic beverage


I think result is perhaps a little bit darkest, what is your opinion ?

Don't hesitate to say what your thought on all my choice (composition of wood assembly, width and thickness of each wooden piece, etc…), my goal is to perfect myself !

Thx for all friends, and have a good day !

I don't know if that finish is food-ready, though… That is why they usually say mineral oil or salad bowl finish.

I like the boards. Very dark, which is unusual-shouldn't be, because it looks wonderful!

Thx for answer tyskkvinna.

Sealer assure me that there's no problem for a food use after apply this finish. It's only necessary to let oil to dry.

I'm a little concerned about the wood you used. Especially the "unknown" since some woods can
definitely be toxic, even poisonous! So, be careful there. I only used mineral oil or salad bowl finish
also just to be safe. Yeah, I know some have said other finishes are OK after fully cured but why
take the chance?
Nice workmanship on the boards, and they are beauties!

First, they look gorgeous! Love the wood combinations.

I would do some research on the 'unknown' wood to ensure it isn't toxic. As already mentioned, there are some woods out there that have poisonous oils, resin and saps, especially exotic wood.

Worst case scenario, you have a gorgeous board to hang on the wall, best case you have a beautiful cutting board that should last a life time.

horsefly and camps764 you're right.
I've did some research on this unknow wood. It's seems that's some kosipo, none toxic. That's great !

Thx for all

Nice cutting boards. And they are long grain like the one I did. I will have an occasion to make more and I came across this video from a project by one of the new LJ's and I learned a lot.
You might want to take a look . The guy does a good job of explaining cutting board qualities.

Check out "degoose" here on LJ. Larry does unbelievable work on cutting boards, some of which he has sold for hundreds of dollars. Once you see them, you'll know why.

The boards are beautiful Seb.

I would just use mineral oil, its food safe and easy to reapply. I second what everyone else said about knowing your woods, especially with these exotic woods. Also, I dont know much about iroko, I have some scraps that I havent used yet but every time I touch them I have some strange residue on my hands. I would make sure that is food safe as well.

Thx again Mauricio,

Iroko isn't a toxic wood. But you need to protect your nose when you cut it cause dusts can irritate the respiratory tract provoking asthma attacks, and you perhaps need to sharpen your blade after many cuts of iroko, that's all!

Do you think iroko would be a good wood for the sole of a wooden plane? I have a krenov smoother made of walnut that needs a more durable sole.

Mauricio, for my opinion, yes Iroko can be use as sole. It's a dense and heavy wood. I think he can be good for that. There's about a month, I'd did a helm for a boat, in iroko. And I'd seen that it's an very dense wood. After difficulties to obtain the result I want, I had an very nice helm!
