Will coating wood with vegetable oil make it sticky?

Rating: 50

The vegetable oil should be rubbed into the surface with a clean dishcloth. It will not get sticky if the coating is thin. I have a treated wooden bowl with vegetable oil and it collects no more dust than other cooking implements that I have sitting out.
