I know this is kinda off topic. I've recently started to make wood spoons out of maple using a small axe. What would be a good oil to use for a preservative?

I choose sesame oil as it has the longest shelf life of all the non-drying oils and does not become rancid easily. This is due to unique antioxidants found in sesame oil and not in other vegetable oils.

I believe mineral oil is best and cheap too. You can get it at any Grocery store in the pharmacy area. It's of course food safe and will not go rancid.

Thanx for all the answers. I think I'll go with the sesame oil. I'll post some pics. It will be awhile, I'm recovering from rotator cuff surgery.
