Question About Mineral Oil Finishing
I'm a new member to this forum. I've had a problem that I haven't been able to come up with a good solution for yet.
I make a lot of parts on the CNC. Most of these parts are essentially 3/4" plywood sheets with various pockets machined out of them.
I need to use a food-safe finish for these parts. I have been using a mineral oil/bee's wax mixture that looks nice.
Here's the issue:
The finishing part of the process is very labor intensive. It takes a lot of work to apply oil to all of the surfaces and inside pockets, etc.
I need to use a paint brush to get into all of the nooks and crannies. On top of that, it takes equally as long to remove every bit of the excess oil.
Is there a better method for this type of job? Or, is there a drying oil that would get rid of the need to spend time removing every last bit of mineral oil on the parts?
Thank you for your time!
