I do not recall the brand/model, but I do know the clients purchased it at Southern Lights in Burnsville, MN. Hope that helps. Thanks!

I think the tung oil would be best as its worked for hundreds of years and can be re coated if it ever gets dull not sure if you can do that with the satin waterlox... but im just a fan of oldschool finishes

I realize this is a very old thread but was directed towards it by someone answering my question on sealing our custom tiger oak breakfast bar. It is currently awaiting stain/sealer and we are so nervous about picking the right stuff. My husband found Howard's butcher block conditioner (food grade mineral oil and natural waxes) and we plan to test it on some scrap wood first. I've read tons of great reviews on people using it for countertops, but thought I'd ask you all if you've heard of it. We are mostly using the countertop as a kitchen table, so no plans for food prep directly on it...but will have many meals and drinks on it. However, this sounded like the safest way to protect it. I've read mixed reviews about tung oil and a few different products but am in no way sold on anything just yet. (Also, does anyone know if we can use a minwax stain on it before sealing with the conditioner? Or is the conditioner only to be applied directly on bare wood? We want to stain it slightly darker but afraid using the wrong sealant might discolor it somehow). My husband and a friend spent weeks custom-making this 10' x 3' long bar so as you can imagine, we are very concerned about doing this right!!
