Sorry to tell you this,but the pine board will remain warped and bowed---
If you simply want an easy to clean work surface---use a poly varnish--both sides and all edges coated with at least 3 applications---this should be stable in the humid enviroment---
If you will be using it as a cutting board (which would be a bad idea) then use mineral oil on all surfaces---that product is found in the pharmasy section of a big store---
Best to use poly and a small cutting board.
