Cheese tray for my wonderful daughter

I made this for my Chicago daughter, at her request. She wanted a stripey cheese tray with purpleheart in it. Haven't put a finish on it yet, but I'm thinking of just doing a mineral oil finish. I used lacquer on purpleheart once, and it turned brown.

Purpleheart will turn brown after being exposed to light.

Yes, but... The aforementioned purpleheart turned brown instantly when I sprayed it with clear lacquer. The cutting board I made for my wife a few years ago had a couple of purpleheart strips in it, and they are still purple, as the cutting board lives under the sink most of the time.

Its the UV light that makes purpleheart turn brown and there is no UV light under the sink.

Mineral oil, aka refined motor oil, isn't a finish, it's a lubricant.
