For me I use a lot of antique oil or General Finishes Seal-A-Cell followed by Arm-R-Seal. I use these on all my turnings no matter if they are used for food or show. General Finishes told me you can use these for hot gravies, hot veggies, or any hot food after it has cured 30 day. I also like to use Mike Mahoney's walnut oil on utensils.
Ernie Conover put me onto these. He uses antique oil on all of his utility items. All finishes are food safe if cured 72 hrs.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
