    @Krankin How are you finishing that?

    I have found that vacuuming an engraving like that immediately really helps keep the work clean - there is a lot of ash and cooked wood left in the image area that can make a mess if you let it get away on you!

    Since its a food-grade object, what are you going to oil it with?

    I would recommend getting the board nice and hot then rubbing with clapmans salad bowl wax, or alternatively mineral oil or a homade mix of beeswax and mineral…just my 2 pennies

    @DCHydro Yeah, I was thinking of using something like that. Beeswax or coconut oil. I have gotten out the bulk of the ash just by dabbing it with a wet cloth, but there is still probably some that i didn’t get out. Where would be a good place to get the Salad bowl wax or mineral oil?

    Windser plywod and home depot both carry clapmans for the bowl/cutting board wax. I find clapmans is a great product and made in BC. It’s in a little white plastic round container. If you have trouble finding I have some you could use as well as some beeswax if you decide that route. Clapmans is a mix of a few things.

    I would would go mineral oil over
    coconut oil. You could even just set it in a bath of mineral oil and let it soak for a few minutes.
