Canadian Butcher Block Company

You can use wood products around sinks and dishwashers. In fact we love the look of undermount-sinks within wood products. The only note that we will share is that its not the wood that's the issue, its how it is sealed or finished. Canadian Butcher Block Company inc. finishes our tops with a penetrating and waterproof, organic tung-oil which is 100% food safe. We don't recommend finishing any wood tops that will host a water source that is a mineral or linseed oil, or with a film-type finish like polyurethane, conversion varnishes, or lacquer.

I need a counter top for my island 3x9,5. I have butcher block in the home we are selling but the company does counter tops not islands.
