After I saturate the wood with mineral oil and it swells, is it possible for me to stain and seal on top of that? Relatively new to finishing wood/woodworking and wanted to try this method before messing with the epoxy and everything. I am re-purposing some old 2" thick pine boards that are about 5.5" wide sections that are joined together to form a big butcher block almost. Ive attached a couple pictures of what I did with the board the first time, and what I am making this go around. The boards that I have left have been exposed to the weather for a while and have started cracking even though they are reinforced with 1/2" all thread trough both ends.
