More Product Details
The very first product we ever released was our Cutting Board Oil formula, originally just called "Walrus Oil" since it was our only product at the time. The delicate ratio of ingredients makes it excellent for production woodworking since it only requires one coat of finish to achieve a lustrous look and feel while providing water protection. Our blend of Coconut Oil and Pure Mineral Oil is the perfect viscosity to deeply soak into the wood while not washing out too easily when a cutting board is used and cleaned daily. The beeswax provides water repellant qualities while also giving the surface a more smooth and color-rich finish. The added Vitamin E helps protect the wood from bacteria growth while the wood comes into contact with food. Our Cutting Board Oil is also completely shelf stable and will not go rancid. Our finish contains no dyes and only brings out and locks-in the wood's natural wood colors.
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.
Safe for Food-Contact Surfaces
Every product manufactured by Walrus Oil is 100% Food-Safe. All ingredients are considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA for food-contact surfaces. Our Cutting Board Oil can be used on kitchen butcher block counters, cutting boards, wood utensils, and even baby toys.
Using Cutting Board Oil with Another Company's Products
Our Cutting Board Oil can be used in conjunction with most other oil-based finishes or epoxy and resins, such as when making a "river board" or when using wood pieces that have had cracks and holes filled with epoxy.
