Having gotten an adjustable aluminum hat block for Christmas, my wood blocks probably won't be seeing as much action as they once did. I've noticed that the finish is just about gone from both of my wood blocks. Is there a protocol for refinishing or for treating a block, after use?

You could lightly sand and spray with polyurethane or lacquer. I like the Varathane in the black spray can (satin). Or you could just paste wax then with some wax made for hard wood floors.
