kitchen cart/butcher block, what oil to use for the cutting surface?
Picked this up today for a measly total of free from a neighbour who broke a piece of the drawer so he was just going to throw it out.
I re-drilled the piece and cleaned it and am very happy with result.
Got a knife block built in for quick access, paper towel holder for quick cleaning and a hook set for quick attachements.
Wine rack and drawer for storage and I think its a pretty good steal.
On the top for veggies and fruits pull out board to put on top for meat and fish.
He says its made out of cherry wood. I say it looks more like birch, but oh well. Rubbed a knife against it for a while and it was pretty soft.
Now the question is, as I have never owned a real wooden board, will only be getting the one I want in september. What oil/wax should I use to keep it in shape?
here are some pictures:
