The website for the originator of cobblewood:

http://www.birgerjuell.com

They have a patent on the grout that they sell.......so are of course unwilling to disclose the exact contents......they sell the material at their web site ($60 per gallon)

From the site.......Several points to remember:

Keep the "sawdust" grout lines less than 1/4"..........If they're larger then use tile grout instead........

"they" use the sawdust from cutting the blocks for the grout to match color/species............

They bevel the blocks edges for good clean joints..........

The grout will shrink and need to be re-applied/refreshed in the future...........

If I had to do this .............I would use a good quality oil based floor polyurethane........power blend the sawdust and finish with a drill/mixer to a nearly DRY mix ......and then TEST the result on a workshop prototype to test the drying time and appearence and consistancy...............

GOOD LUCK Doug
