Walrus Oil® Cutting Board Oil is a handcrafted proprietary blend of coconut oil, mineral oil, vitamin E and beeswax. It is FDA approved for food contact surfaces such as cutting boards, butcher blocks and wooden countertops, does not solidify under normal conditions, is highly shelf stable and has virtually no scent. It goes on smooth, not too thick and not too thin, and won't impart a strange taste to food. It will leave your board with a silky smooth finish, rich color, and a little shine. Use two coats for more depth and color.
For New Wood Projects When using our Cutting Board Oil for new wood projects, be sure to sand at 320 to 600. To prevent raised grain, before sealing some woodworkers will do the sand-wet-sand method, meaning they'll sand the board, wet it, let it dry, and then do a final sand before applying a finish.
How to Maintain or Restore a Cutting Board Cutting board maintenance and restoration is relatively simple. Clean the cutting board first with light soap and lukewarm water, then allow plenty of time to dry. If there are deep knife cuts or if any mold is visible, sanding the board down will be necessary using an electric orbit sander or planer if available. After sanding all surfaces simply apply a coat of our Cutting Board Oil and allow it to dry for 12 to 24 hours. Wipe away any excess oil after cure time.

Our Cutting Board Oil can be used on kitchen butcher block counters, cutting boards, wood utensils, and even baby toys.
