Butcherblock Island, how to finish it?

Koukla | Aug 31, 2011 11:53 AM

Hi, we just bought a home with a butcher block island, they had used it to chop food on directly, and therefore oiled it monthly to keep it in good shape. I want to get it sanded down, and then either put a light stain on it, and then seal it (with what?). I'd prefer to use cutting boards that I can really scrub, (and put in the dishwasher), than using a huge island to put food directly on.

Any ideas?
