Reclaimed Wormy American Chestnut countertop that I just finished for a small home improvement store in my area. The top measures 4’x6’ and is 1-3/4” thick. I started with rough sawn recaimed 2×4 timbers that came out of an old local farmhouse dating back in the 1800’s. After 3 separate glue-ups, I finished the top off with a coat of tung-oil, followed by a couple coats of poly. The edges were profiled with a drawknife to give it a distinct old age hand hewn finish that compliments all of the worm and nail holes of this beatuiful wood. Thanks for looking!
