I am building a maple knife block and am trying to figure out which finish will be best. The sides are veneered with tiger maple and I want that figure to pop. I was considering tung oil or a danish oil. Since the knives will only be stored in the slots and not really come into much contact with the finish, I didn’t know if I needed a food safe finish and if these were, or not. Thanks
