live edge finish
(North Vancouver B.C. Canada)
I am making some serving boards out of Arbutus. I will be using walnut oil to finish the boards once I have them planed and sanded. I just need to know what I should use to finish the live edge. I am considering varnishing the edge, as it would not be used to serve food on, or should I just use the walnut oil as well?
Just use the walnut oil. Re-sand after the grain rises after using a bit and then re-oil often.
