    My brother , who's a professional butcher, told me to use either mineral oil or tung oil on my new butcher block cutting board . He also said to treat a brand new wood surface with melted beeswax , let the hot wax soak down into the end grain , scrape off any excess wax from the surface and then oil . They resurface and wax once a year and oil as needed .
    It's what they use on the butcher blocks ... was this advice correct ?

    In my experience, no sir.
    First, tung oil will seal the board like any other wood finish. That’s for gun stocks.
    Beeswax is good, but not before oiling. Again, it’ll seal the wood (to a degree) and the oil can’t penetrate.
    A new board should be dry. Mineral oil is the best, I like to warm it to thin it down, wipe it on wet. Let it soak overnight. Wipe it down the next morning with a little more then when it’s soaked up all it can, wipe any excess oil and use a board cream or the beeswax. Some board creams do have beeswax and mineral oil mixed together.
    That’s how I was taught by a butcher at Kelly’s grocery about 30 years ago.
    Doesnít play well with TROLLS...
