    Mineral Oil vs. Butcher Block Oil

    In the Old Butcher shops at the end of the week they would take very course ground salt and cover the top of the block .They had a very course brush with metal bristles about 1/8th wide and would scrub the top of the block to remove the slime from the blood and fat.It was almost like sanding it down with course ground paper.Cooking Oil And Mineral Oil are the easiest and the safest for a food safe application Some people use Peanut Oil not thinking about people with Peanut allergy's

    Its Just about done

    Just have the vises to mount and it finished I am really happy with the height at 35 1/2 inches I also went with the Pine dowels it seems the oil darkened them just enough to give it some contrast I was looking for
