Got it today. Really nice board. No cracks, very smooth surface, except for the "mill grooves" (?), so I sanded those:

Mineral oil

No matter how dense and smooth the board looks, it's thirsty. This pic was taken just after layer three or four, and you can see it already soaked up the oil:

Given it a try already?

Yes, with some old knifes from my mother. I didn't use any clamp, watched two youtube videos and just went at it without thinking too much. Positive: The knifes are sharper than ever. Negative: I didn't always keep the angle, so the bevel isn't that even. For the paring knife, some parts of the knife are discoloured because I think I almost layed it flat for one stroke. So yeah, far from perfect, but very pleased with the cutting abilities. I'll have to be more careful with more precious knifes.
