wood and other utensil care

<<< Question to the woodworkers: is there anything I should do to make
the spoons food-worthy? They are, as far as I can tell, raw wood of

They are safe as they are, but being somewhat porous they can pick up
germs, tastes and smells from food and dishwater and leaving them
soaking in water can ruin them. An occasional wipe with an edible oil
which won't go rancid can help.
