Rough butcher block texture- help!
We recently installed butcher block counters in our kitchen, which I have faithfully oiled according to the standard 3-4 weeks. From the very first the counters were not smooth feeling-- not rough, exactly, but definitely not smooth or silky, like I've felt other butcher counters be. I thought successive oilings would mellow it out but it only seems to be getting worse. Is there some kind of finish we can put on that isn't problematic around food? I'm flummoxed as to why ours is so different from every other butcher block I've ever met.
