I made an end grain cutting board for my wife that had various hard woods that were all supposedly food safe.
Doing some reading and watching videos, I understand that this can vary depending on the type of wood and grain and such, or personal preference. The woods chosen also have a contrast in various colors, from a lighter blonde look to a dark look. From Walnut to to Cherry to Oak (I think, it was mostly scrap pieces and hard to remember).
What is a good finish that is food safe for a cutting board and for different colors of wood? The design is random, not a specif detailed design.
How is this different than using beeswax?
