I originally just used mineral oil, but once I tried Howard Butcher Block Conditioner I was sold. It gives the boards a much nicer appearance and feel, and the wax helps protect against moisture and extends the time before needing retreatment. Howard’s is mineral oil with beeswax and carnuba was. You can get it on line, at the BORG, or places like Woodcraft. I include a fresh bottle with every board along with a document detailing care instructions. The most expensive board I ever sold cost zero. I make the boards for fun and give them to friends to use and enjoy. I have only given out 26 end grain boards thus far, combinations of hard maple, walnut, Purple Heart, or cherry.
