Your pastry board was the only one I could find that has the suitable dimensions (although it was also offered by some other stores at higher prices). Therefore, to one in need of that size pastry board, I would recommend it -- but only with a warning: Application of mineral oil to the surface, as the accompanying instructions recommend, raises the wood grain to an unacceptable degree. No pastry would ever come loose from it. This also calls into question the kind of wood used. I must sand the surface and redo.
Instructions included an optional treatment -- with a certain kind of varnish, I think. Perhaps that would work better -- I don't know, never heard of the brand. A caution against using tung oil was included...meaning, I'm sure, to avoid applying it alone, as with the mineral oil. That should be made clearer.
I shall scrub the board well with soap and water, let it dry thoroughly, sand, then apply the high quality sealer-finish I have used for forty years -- Waterlox. It contains tung oil but is food safe after it is dry. This is in the manufacturer's literature. It sinks into the wood, absolutely locks out water, does not raise grain and produces a beautiful finish that takes abuse gracefully, for years. Waterlox is used for wood kitchen counters. Recently, I used it on a large, new, unfinished kitchen island. Several applications are required. It dries within 24 hours, but for rough use the finished piece should be allowed to cure for a month. It is also expensive but worth the price...must usually be ordered directly from the manufacturer, in Cleveland -- www.waterlox.com.
I recommend this product.
