bread board - to seal or not?

July 19, 2010 - 6:31am -- dtaffe

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.
