    264E15F6-F014-4E01-B17D-72FAF06D91E9.jpeg So I’ve upcycled an old tired kitchen worksurface into a nice serving platter.

    Question: what can or should I treat the wood with that won’t poison my future dinner guests?

    Osmo Top Oil, food safe, brilliant product.

    Used the clear matt on my oak worktops goes on lovely, leaves a great finish, spills just sit on the top, scratch resistant, never had food stain it.

    Finish does fade slightly after a couple years but rubbed surface back to wood, cleaned off and reapplied came up as good as new.

    A little expensive but worth it

    Osmo worktop oil is food Safe I believe, we’ll it better be, as my chipping boards are coated in it.

    Think Danish oil may also be ok, but not 100%

    ps not sure about the base to your plattter:D
