After years of talking and thinking about it, I finally got motivated and built and installed new tops. Finish for now is just saturated with mineral oil. Eventually I’ll probably put a hard coat on it. I guess now I’ll be forced to proceed with new cabinet doors and finish on my ugly and outdated cabinets.

I’m usually not a big fan of wooden counter tops but that walnut sure does make a beautiful one. Congratulations. You wife better be happy, just don’t let her brag to loud it’ll make the rest of us look bad
