Not much to add to the above as the comments are bang on. I use the butcher block oils from HD, starting with the plain oil and the final coat is their combination of oil and beeswax. in each application the oil is heated in a small crock pot and applied as as hot as can be safely handled with a soft rag. The board is left to dry for 24 hours before the final coatis applied.
To date I have added footpads to all boards per the end users request. I use plastic feet from ACE hardware attached with stainless steel screws. These are added as the last step, the screw holes are however pre-drilled so that some of the oiled seeps into that area.
