Butcher block finish options are always a huge question for my clients. When I chose this finish, I chose it for my personal kitchen project.

I wanted something my children could lay their snacks on and be confident chemicals were not leaching into their food.

I researched options. I had worked with general finishes before, and I LOVE their products. They are easy to use and the very best durability.

I put on four coats over my European Beach butcher block. I absolutely love the color it brings out of the wood.

This salad bowl finish is NOT tinted in any way. It is a natural oil that will bring out the colors of your existing wood. It leaves a matte finish.

The Pros:

  • No chemicals!
  • Easy to wipe down.
  • Protects your butcher block.
  • Can lay food directly on the finish.

The Cons:

  • It does not protect against watermarks, stains, or general wear and tear.
  • Watermarks show easily.
  • Any food with color will stain the finish.
  • Monthly maintenance is required. (Cleaning and adding another coat)

Salad Bowl Finish

 

Conclusion:

We have decided, even though the finish is absolutely wonderful, it does not fit our family. We will be sanding and applying a high gloss general finish product.
