Vegetable oils are all edible but not all are great choices for wood cutting boards. Peanut oil resists going rancid and works well. We use olive oil on wood food contact surfaces as it's always nearby as our go to oil for healthy stir fry uses. 
 I've made, sold and given away many wood cutting boards over the years but in our home kitchen we have switched to the large plastic sheets for most cooking. They are sanitary, come in multiple sets for very little cost and easy to work on. We do still use a couple of boards , one for cheese with company and another for breads. 
There are situations in woodworking that ask for a double spread of glue and also a single spread, no hard fast rule for one or the other. 
I use my tablesaw often as an extra work surface. I don't fret over glue on cast iron,  and a razor scraper pops it off easily. The blade is a very pricey item indeed and is lowered during such work space events. The pricey Beisemeyer fence is also protected from glue!
 Now and then I sand the metal off with a DA sander and wax it but mostly I use old newspapers (they are becoming a rare item! :D) to cover or a plastic drop cloth when spraying. It will be there long after I'm done with it.

Candidly said, wood is not the safe food prep surface it was once thought to be. That's an old topic for sure. There are real reasons it's no longer is seen in butcher shops, etc..

I got a gallon of mineral oil for 20 bucks on amazon.  I use the boos block oil that also has oil plus a bit of wax.  charcuterie boards are popular and I can finish one in 5 minutes and it is ready for presentation.

I use mineral oil also. It takes several  coats but I know you can drink it,  never heard of allergies to it, and it doesn't go rancid. I pick it up at the pharmacy.

Food grade mineral oil with a bit of wax, either paraffin (preserving wax) or beeswax, depending on how fancy you want to get. Warm up the oil in a double boiler pot, add some wax to it and let it melt in. It should cool off to an oily sort of paste that  you can keep in a jar and wipe onto boards as needed. It's all considered "food safe", and wont go rancid over time.
