I don't know what your prices will be, but I found that my boards have sold for $35-90 each. Depends on size. I use only, hard maple, walnut, and cherry.
I have never used anything on them for finish EXCEPT mineral oil. Others have used salad bowl finish etc.
All the boards I make are end grain boards, after sanding and sizing, I liberally apply mineral oil, let set till all is absorbed, then reapply and repeat a third time.
I have not seen linseed oil that is said to be food safe. Actually I have never considered it nor looked for it. Just my opinion.
My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.
