for greatest flexibility ---

sand it very smooth

treat w/ food grade finish (not vegetable oil -- it will turn rancid!) -- you can find food grade finishes online and at better stores catering to the woodworking market.
this kind of finish is not "oily" -- it's the kind used for fine wood bowls, utensils and the like that you would use for salads and other foods.

then can cover it any ol' way you want so long as it is food safe or just leave uncovered for the natural wood look.

What is the look you are going for? If you are just covering it in fanci foil or whatever, you will need to use hot glue to attach it, tape won't work.

But ... I cover mine with white shelving paper... sticks wonderfully... Then I cover with fanci foil or whatever I wanna use... and it tapes fine to that...

Lots of different techniques these wonderful CCers are giving you icon_smile.gif
