« Part 4: finishing options Part 5 of Walnut kitchen countertop series Part 6: applying finish »

The glue-ups were trimmed a bit to fit the space above the base cabinets. The walls around the cabs don’t meet at right angles though, so the right glue-up had to be cut accordingly.

What is left before finishing is sanding with an ROS, grits 100 through 400. I also want to treat the edge with either a 1/8” round over, or a 1/8” bevel bits. Have to try on a scrap piece first to see which works better.

Have yet to find one joint connector to bridge the left and right sides of the countertop. I plan to screw the tops tightly to the wall side of the base cabinets and make oval holes for the middle and front rows of screws, so that seasonal movement doesn’t push the top against the wall.
