Default Pizza making table.

I made a sturdy table for pizza making, this table can take a hell of a lot of punishment....
It still needs finishing off and a pizza friendly finish.

What sort of finish would be pizza friendly, Im thinking olive oil?

Tung oil, which is of ancient Chinese origin, is recommended for kitchen tables, chopping blocks and boards. It is claimed to be the finest natural wood finish in existence and has yet to be duplicated synthetically. It is waterproof, impervious to many food acids, and does not need to be stripped and refinished like a shellac or lacquer.

I wouldn't consider covering a beautiful table like yours in anything else.

The table looks great! We just really started using our outdoor prep/pizza area this summer and it's so nice to sit and chat and make pizzas right around the oven.

Cheers

I know you said you already used the olive oil. But I would definitely reconsider, It is not advisable to use olive oil, or other organic/food-based oils. They can become rancid and sticky with regular application and time. It won't hurt the wood but it will cause an odor and can alter the taste of food.

See if you can come across some Food Grade Mineral oil.

Your table looks great. That's just what I want! What type of wood is it made of?
