I have my mom's kneading board that my dad had made many years ago. I've used it to make Christmas cookies and Easter bread. Well, last year my husband used it to carve the Thanksgiving turkey! I was mortified...anyway...the oiled finish is off and I have no idea what to do to get it back to the way it was. Is it ruined??

bread board - to seal or not?

I recently purchased a beautiful hard-maple kneading board that hooks over the edge of my countertop. It is sanded but otherwise unfinished.  The man who made it says he's never sealed or otherwise treated his but that I could try to oil it if I wanted.  I've also read that one could use a mix of mineral oil and beeswax, rubbed in. I'm open to suggestions and advice. Thanks in advance.

In need of a kneading board!

Hello, I'm new here (I registered just to post this question!) and I'm
in need of a portable, sturdy and easily cleaned work surface for
kneading doughs.

I've been trying to price large wooden cutting boards but I'm not sure
how large of a work surface I'll really need to knead a loaf or two of
bread, or even if this is the right tool for the job.
