Cutting Board Finish
Start with a clean board and utensils. Be sure your cutting board and spoons are as clean as possible and thoroughly dry.
Apply the oil. Using a clean, soft cloth or paper towel, apply the oil in an even layer over the wood.
Let it soak in. Leave the oil to soak in, overnight if possible, or for at least a few hours.
Remove the excess. If the board or your spoons feel oily or sticky, buff off any remaining oil with a clean dry cloth or paper towel.
