  • Finishing a maple butcher block

    I have a maple butcher block that I aquired and am refinishing. If I intend on using this as a food prep surface, should I only use oil specifically for butcher blocks?

    Also is there such thing as a non-toxic stain that I could use to add some color to it, then oil over it?

    Thanks for any help!

        Also take a look at these, there are some tints that will add some color.

            The cooking shows a suggest you use warmed mineral oil as vegetable oil will turn rancid. As far as adding a tint I am also looking for a non-toxic way to add color to the maple.

              I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but here it is. Could you use food coloring to tint the maple?
