to be on the safe side do as a friend of mine does with salable items like this and simply apply about three coats of vegatable oil to seal them, then when dry give them a buff up

Butchers blocks, also made of beech, have no finish at all, maybe better to leave as nature intended.

I made some chopping boards from beech worktop offcuts about 3 years ago, never treated them with anything and they are both fine. As Ron stated, leave them as nature intended.

I have used Tung Oil in the past which is advertised as being safe. It's expensive though.
