    Gray sweet-smelling wood: ID? (UPDATED w/photos)

    Where do you live? Looks to me like white oak that had been submerged for a long time. We get a lot of it here in Texas. Some of it floats and some doesn't this looks like it didn't hense the musty smell.

    Turning Bloodwood (Satine)

    Does bee's wax work on end grain cutting boards after mineral oil soak, I have never used it on end grain thinking it would build up and look waxie ( if there is such a word ,).

    Turning Bloodwood (Satine)

    Pardon the intrusion, but, I don't use anything on items that may contact food except mineral oil and reapplied when the wood shows drying. I have read numerous articles on finishes and had no better idea of safe finishes, it seems to be personal choices. I do grain and endgrain cutting boards and use mineral oil. On items that don't meet food, I use Old Masters gel stain and nothing else. It even works great on mesquite and Texas ebony. Opinions appreciated. Oop's. Old Masters gel stain is a neutral color stain that makes the natural colors of the wood really pop.
