Might I suggest that you only use this board for cutting dry stuff like
bread. Walnut isn't a particularly close-grained wood, so effectively
disinfecting it may turn out to be a problem - i.e., don't place animal
products, like meats and cheeses on it. A better wood selection for a
true cutting board would be hard maple or birch.

all wood has long term exposure issues.
however. . .
Walnut is not, repeat, NOT toxic as used for serving vessels.
it is however toxic to horses when used for bedding, and also its
toxic when used as mulch for plants.
i would say, use a dust mask for any sanding, cutting, machining of
lumber. however i don't follow my own advice on this one except when
doing alot of sanding.
