No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
I just blow mine off and apply mineral oil liberally. The general rule is once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year and then once a year for the rest of its life or as needed.
I just keep coating mine every 6 or 8 hours untill the wood acts like it dosnt really wanna soak any more up then as needed after that. Havnt had any problems yet. I just buy the drug store mineral oil for $1 a bottle instead of the same thing in a bottle that says Salad Bowl Finish which is severel $'s per bottle.
