Question by iday_iday: is it wood finish, safe to come in contact with food?
i just got a kitchen center work small island cutting table from my neighboor. i allready sanded everything and apply wood finish im waiting untill tomorow for the clear finish. it has a small pocket inlay for the cutting table and i have the matching cutting table, i sanded it to remove my neighboors knife marks and clean it up.

i am wondering if i can use the wood finish and fast drying polyurethane in the cutting board. i am not sure if it its safe for food preparation because it contains LEAD.

i am using the brand “minwax”
1.Dark Chesnut
2. Fast drying Polyurethane.
i wont be using the table for A WHILE. im moving in the 09/28 so it will be very dry by then. i am just working on projects before i move and ruin the other house tile with the mess.
its ok i just expanded my search and the safest and most conventional way its mineral oil. THANKS.
DIY Doc, i did not use finish i was allmost a 97% that it was not safe, i just wanted to be certainly sure since i wanted the whole set to match, but like i said before i extended my search and i found out the safest way its to use mineral oil. and thats what i will do.

Lead would definitely be BAD to mix with food.

    Any idea where one would find locking box joint bits for thinner stock? for instance … 3/8 thick stock?

    That’s how we did it for years but the setup blocks eliminate a bunch of the trial and error along with the wasted time and wood we used to go through. I did it the old way for too long and will stick with setup blocks whenever I can now!

    You do have to use the bits the setup blocks are designed for or the profile will not match. All of the bit companies do this as there are no “standard” bit profiles.

    not living in the states and being able to get this stuff it has dawned on me to make my own set up blocks for each profile! why didn’t I think of that before??

    do you need to have rockler bits?

  6. missingno777

    Very cool. But couldn’t you just use trial and error and use a piece of timber as the gauge?

    International shipping is a real pain these days. Lots of companies are cutting back on the amount of International trade they do because of the cost and complexity that keeps piling on the costs. I don;t know if there is a good answer but suspect if Rockler (and others) could be profitable with operations in other countries they would already be there.

    These guys think of everything!

    Great info. Thank you for sharing this.

    The products are real nice. The only problem with Rockler stuff is that they try to pretend the rest of the world does not exist. They so much need European / Australian / … agencies so that each person does not have to pay insane custom / transport fees.
    You may want to pass that on to your good friends at Rockler.

    Nice presentation. Thanks

    They sure do come in handy. I’ll have to check them out.
    Thanks Tom

    if its not dry then its not safe
    if its already dried then it should be fine as far as i know…

    side note(most tables have wood finish on them, the average household eats on it everyday i think it would be safe)

  15. Richard B

    If any finish or other coating you put in wood contains lead it is not safe for food preparation. In fact, there is no need to apply anything to the cutting table. Just keep in clean.

  16. Sandyspacecase

    Don’t Do It! It doesn’t matter how long it’s dried,it will still get into you food when you use your knife on it. And I can’t believe that Minwax is making a product that contains Lead,I think Not. Anyway,what you need to use to finish it is,”Cutting Board Oil” also called butcherblock oil.It is made just for wooden spoons,Bowls,cutting boards, anything wooden that you use in the kitchen. And it’s FDA Approved. Byee
