Finally decided to do something with the leftover scraps of wood I've had laying around.

This cutting board is curly maple in center, then walnut, oak, and purple heart, all surrounded by walnut. I finished with shellac, since it is non-toxic. I just bought a can of "salad bowl finish", which I'll give a try next.

My other thought for those scraps -- invest in some pen-turning equipment!

Thanks for comments and suggestions. I should have thought of mineral oil! Has to be about 1/3 (or less) the price of the commercial "safe" finishes.

Seems like I remember reading somewhere that it is good to heat up the oil like you said and melt a little paraffin wax into it.
