Best oil or stain that is safe for food?

Hello

 

I made a fruit & onion box and wanting to know the best type of oil or stain to apply to it that is safe for food.

Hi @RTTACJ,


Great work on the box, it looks fantastic. 

 

Here's an example of a food grade oil that you might like to consider: Feast Watson Kitchen Timber Oil. It is safe to use on items like chopping boards, kitchen benches and salad bowls so would be perfect for your fruit and vegetable box.  

 

I'll now hand over to the rest of the community who might like to share their recommendations...

Thanks Jason, have been making a few things at home with my extra time due to covid 19.

We'd love to see what you've been up to @RTTACJ. Feel free to share. 

 

There's also plenty of inspiration if you need some for your next project on our Project Gallery. We've also set up a gallery of smaller projects that might be suited to complete during this isolation period. Hope you find it useful.

Nice job on this and your other projects @RTTACJ. Well done. 👍

 

Would you mind sharing how you made your snowman and Christmas tree when you have time?

My kids would love to have these in our yard this year and any tips would be appreciated.
