I'd think that anything other than pressure treated would be food safe, but would need to be replaced periodically. I'd think about stainless steel or cutting board material.

you don't want to use oak because of the large gain, you could use teak, mahogany, maple. You want something tight gain for cutting board use. How you thought about starboard?

If its only for the sides and not cutting surface I would use cedar. But no wood is always best.

I would rather resin waterproofed wood over oil, as it seals, is a great adhesive, cleans well, is hard enough to resist cuts, bacteria and chemical, and stiffens the board keeping it from warping even in the sun.. I am now on my second season with a 4' piece of 1/2 ply I use to fillet, steak and trim at least 2 times a week..
