Redoing little parts of our house, we decided to do an ebony stained wooden counter top. After removing the counter, the pieces were cut individually. They were all glued on. A 1 1/2”x3/4” piece of pine was nailed to the front edge of the counter to give it a thicker look. Stain was then applied after some sanding and filling in any gaps or holes. When the stain was dried approximately 6 coats of poly were applied and let cured before anything was placed on top.

I’ve got a fake looking laminate kitchen counter and I’ve got a ton of beech and maple. I’ve thought about putting a new counter top down.Did you put the poly on plywood also? What kind of wood did you use for the top, did you you use pine? I like the looks of wooden countertops and your counter looks very nice.
