protect pineboard for worktop project

    Im making a breakfast bar and have found some pineboard that is the thickness I want. How do I protect it with oils/stains that will last a while and be safe to use with food and stuff. Thanks

    Would a Danish or linseed oil not work? That's what I have used in my oak sideboard.

    Would it make sense to Apply a wax then a worktop oil when its dry?

    worktop oil on its own will be enough

    You need polyurethane varnish for food use. Sand the wood using something like 120grit and then 320grit. Then run over with some 0000 grade wire wool. The put on first coat of varnish then lightly wire wool this when dry. Then do a further two coats.

    I use Rustins clear Matt polyurethane varnish. It's not totally Matt but like a Matt laptop screen rather than glossy.

    Epoxy Resin is the best way to get a high gloss finish but it's expensive.…XPQ
