    Here we go again, Cutting Board Finish.

    I know this subject has been beaten like a Red-Headed step-child at family reunion, but I'm not asking about "what" finish, but "Where" finish?

    I went to Walgreens and they wanted $5.30/pint, went to the Orange Borg and they wanted $8.99/pint for a "Cutting Board" finish. Is this normal? it seems awful expensive for plain ol mineral oil.

    My Grandpa used to say, "Take a slug of mineral oil every morning, and you can hit a knot-hole at fifty paces!"

    Does anyone have a place to buy it less expensively??

    I guess I don't get out enough.

    Maybe a different drugstore? IIRC, mineral oil is a lot cheaper than that.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    WalMart. I think I paid about two bucks for the last pint I bought. Used it on a board I made for my niece, then gave her the rest of the bottle. I think it was "Equate" or something like that (their house brand).

    I use this (LVT Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish), just for aesthetics. But I think it costs even more than what you've stated.
    There's usually more than one way to do it... ........
