Started this project after viewing some of the posts on this site, learning as I went, I think it turned out pretty nice. Guess the wife likes it as now she wants all the countertops make the same way.

I hope none of your guests have nut allergies. Perhaps you have a finish on them that does not permit the walnut resin from being in contact with food. I just know that when my nephew comes to visit, we have to be ultra careful as he is anaphylactic to nuts of any sort. I have to put away any cutting board with walnut in it.

Nevertheless, I really like the look. Walnut is one of my favourite woods. Well done!

Your countertop looks great! I may have a chance to do something similar in a year or so, and I’m curious—what did you use to seal the wood around the sink cutout?
