We're finally at the point where I'm applying the mineral oil and Beeswax finish. Got the cutting board laser engraved yesterday and have now put three good coats of mineral oil and let that soak in and am now applying a good, heavy coat of Beeswax with mineral oil (my mixture).

I'll let the Beeswax set for about 4 hours and then wipe off as much as I can, flip it and do the other side. I'll continue wiping it down until it can go a few hours without seeing any wet spots. This part could take a couple of days.

In the Epilog laser right after engraving (you can go to my Instagram and see the engraving in motion) -

One coat of mineral oil -

Beeswax applied, it's a nice, rich color -

Three coats of mineral oil with the last being a mineral oil/Beeswax mix. I let that set for about 6 hours and then buff it with paper towels to get the excess Beeswax off. The cutting board is left with a rich luster sheen that is velvety smooth.

very nicely done, David !!
I thought my Boos Board was that heavy and I just weighed it and it is only 10 pounds.
that one must be a monster to carry around !! I can't imagine it not having a finger groove.
it would probably crack a tile if it hit the floor just right. (knock on wood that it never happens).

[you should at least lay a big rack of ribs on it for the Photo Op before it goes out].
