We offer a variety of finishes,  the most common finish for our butcher block is butcher block oil.  We recommend butcher block oil for all surfaces that are used to cut or prep food directly on.  If you make the choice to avoid any type of food preparation on your butcher block then you may choose a maintenance free polyurethane finish. Polyurethane comes in 3 finishes as seen below, satin, semi gloss or gloss finish.  Satin is most commonly used  for projects that you want to look as natural as possible. 

If you decide on a polyurethane finish then you may also choose to stain your butcher block  or wood countertop also. We use the full line of Goudy stains  so feel free to choose any colour  or come in person and you can see them in person. We also offer custom colour matching.
