I didn't include the inner pattern simply because it was more of a free-form design with the help of a straight edge. I'd suggest making the outer borders at least 1.25" thick though, just to make sure it is sturdy enough.

I bought the mineral oil at my local supermarket. It was right next to the wood cutting boards. Just make sure it is 100% mineral oil and that it's the stuff used for protecting cutting boards, wood bowls, etc. I would also suggest letting it dry for at least a few days before using it.

Thank you BrewDoc22 for posting your design and to the OP! Just finished making mine and I couldn't have done it without you. I used a 1X4X36" piece of Maple from HD. Still trying to decide to mineral oil it or not. Here is a couple pics:
