Antique Butcher Block

Lugeneb | Jul 1, 2010 02:30 PM

I just purchased a butcher block that my great-grandfather made approximately 100 yrs ago. It sat in the barn for at least 60 years. It was made from a cross cut of an old red oak tree approximately 3 feet across and 1 foot thick. I'm lightly sanding it to get all the dirt and junk off it. I'm finding mixed ideas on finishing it. I want to use it to cut on but I also want it to look nice when not using it. Any suggestions on how to treat my diamond in the rough? thanks
