A little late to this, but as a turner, I learned about walnut oil
years ago. It DOES dry and does not remain sticky. I use it almost
exclusively to finish turnings. (I also use a 3-stage buffing and wax
treatment for most, but the walnut oil is the base.) For woodwork that
is not a turning, I would use a buffing wheel in a high speed flexible
I find it in my local supermarket.
PURE tung oil is also good, but as noted above it must be undiluted
with other stuff.
And to add to the food-safe - you me and all make stuff that
we use to show and such. Not intended for food but look pretty.
We pass or give the plate/bowl/hat to someone. They use it for
Chips. Oil in chips mix with whatever...
Use it for candy etc.
We can't label our work NOT FOR FOOD or whatnot.
Best to be safe and for ourselves when we apply it or dry it in
the shop. The stuff goes into the air we breathe and walk in.
