A pound is plenty, but I'd advise using urethane instead.  It's a 
lot safer to work with and gives a better seal.  You can get food 
safe finishes at any word working shop (though not at Home Depot or 
the like).

Pound away.  Some other designs might be stronger before the 
peening, but the MB has no cover supports anyway....
