Waterlox - best for butcher block island - or something else?
This post got lost so I am reposting.
I have a small John Boos table that I am using as an island. I got the unfinished Maple butcher block top that I am supposed to maintain with mineral oil. I am not cutting on the board. Already I decided I need to finish because I am getting wine stains, food stain, and a wet cloth left by accident swelled the wood...
I want to use Waterlox and wonder if that is the best product for this situation or if there is something else I should use. I want my furniture refinishing guy to do it (I can't ventilate here) but he seems leery of Waterlox which is strange because I have heard such good things here. I believe it is food safe (once cured) - correct? Since so many folks do butcher block as counters I figured there must be good finishes to use.
Thanks in advance!
