How to Apply Watco Butcher Block Oil & Finish
Prepare bare wood for finishing by sanding in the direction of the grain. Begin with 150 grit sandpaper and progress though 180 and 220 grits. Before applying oil, remove all sanding dust and dirt with a vacuum.
Watco Butcher Block Oil & Finish is a ready-to-use product. Do not thin. Use only at room temperature. Mix material thoroughly before application. Stir occasionally during use. Apply with a soft, clean cloth. Allow 6 hours dry time before re-coating. Prior to recoating, lightly scuff sand with 400 grit sandpaper. Allow 72 hours prior to normal use. Hand wash surface prior to contact with food. DO NOT WASH IN DISHWASHER. If desired, use additional coats to build a finish. Do not apply over other finishes. When used on objects with small openings, such as canisters, proper drying may be inhibited when applied on interior surface.
