The finish of butchers block oil is food safe and serves to darken the wood and bring out some of the red in the depth of the red oak. It's easy to refresh by just wiping another coat of oil in every once in a while. And the board itself can be refreshed by sanding it if it ever gets too cut up for your liking.
