Woodcraft sells food grade oils to seal the wood. I bought walnut oil from them for the extractor I plan to build. The oil takes a few days to dry but it hardens the wood. and it won't add any flavor to the honey when dry.

I did an apple press last year and used white oak for all of the parts that touch the apples. I put all of the parts in a plastic bag and filled it with tung oil and let it set.  Wipe it down and let it dry.  Now if I could just make this into an extractor?
