Default food-safe wood finish for DIY mash paddle?

Anyone ever heard of, or used this stuff before?

Behlen food-safe wood finish for salad bowls, etc.

Yah, I've heard of people using it and it's probably safe. I just left mine unfinished though.

It says food safe, but nothing is mentioned about heat. I would contact the manufacturer about that.

Why not just rub it down with some canola oil or let it remain unfinished?

I used the salad bowl finish and it works great. Nice satin finish, cleans up easy.

Here's mine....

100% completely stolen from someone else on HBT that was making them that way. Only difference was that I flipped the two-row pattern so it would get into the very bottom corners of the paddle.

I just sanded it down with the finest grit sand paper I could find and then didn't treat it with anything. It's maple.

Nice beer. I love me some Monks flemmish sour.

Paddle is not bad either.

Thanks, it was a quick effort, I was going to do something more stylized like Cape Brewing's paddle, but lack of a good cutting tool kept it simple.

Yah, The Monks Flemmish is great, especially for $3.99 a bottle.
