I’ve started making end grain cutting boards and treating them with food safe mineral oil. To those of you who have made similar projects, how long does the mineral take to dry/cure to the point where the cutting board can be handled without feeling “oily”?

Mineral oil never dries. Wipe it back to reduce the oily feel.
